14 March 2017

Also i found a way to truncate the post content on the index page so i can use a ‘read more’ link.

I plan on writing here about my development on Htpc Manager and other tech- and webrelated things. At the moment, i am working on some improvements for this site and am still figuring out if i like the current design or not.
