A short conversation ensued around a message wherein I note my underestimating the extent of the task ahead. With permission, I am reposting the transcript of the short conversation verbatim ^2:
capjamesg: I underestimated the extent of this challenge :facepalm: :D
<[campegg]>: 👆 LOL, that's me with any(every?)thing code-related
capjamesg: It's the last 20% that gets you haha.
<[snarfed]>: first 80%, second 80%
Snarfed's comment on the second 80% is so true. I got all my posts and most of my static pages working on 11ty. But, the last 20% of the work required to move my blog to a new platform -- setting up archive pages, setting up the right permalink structure, getting my coffee maps to render correctly -- is a mini-mountain of work.
