My most recent project is a bit more difficult to show. Instead of using steel tools to make wood a different shape, this one is all in bits and bytes.

I wanted a simpler way to share links to this blog, so I bought another domain (I know, this hobby is getting expensive). After much research, I then installed Polr, an open source custom link shortener.

The upshot of this is that I now have the means to share fancy shortlinks like this: lmak.es/blog . Is this necessary? No. But it is fun. And it allows me to easily post links within social media posts or to text them to my friends. If you want to, you can share them with your friends too.

If you need something like this, I suggest checking out Polr as well. It’s well built and pretty straightforward. Oh, and it’s free and open source.

That’s it; thanks for reading!
