Back!

As of lately, I’ve been busy with integrating SAML. Now that is mostly done, I can play Destiny 2 again. The third season is in, with a full DLC to be released in mid-September. Destiny 2 will run on PS5 at 60 FPS at 4K. No need to re-purchase content. Though, I play on a gaming laptop, which is much better expereince, at frame rates of 144!

Uptime

Since this is hosted on GitHub pages, it should be online all the time. Also, I’ve decided to start fresh and not import my Wordpress site. That’s quote dated, and maybe one day, when I have ample time, I could look into the import process. Only crappy thing with hosting this on GitHub is that you don’t get https with a custom domain.
