This website consists of static html pages and css and is made with Hugo. The theme is based on Lanyon-Hugo by tummychow, a theme originally made for Jekyll by @mdo.

Perhaps the fonts look familiar to you, the headlines are in IBM PS/55 re. and the text bodies are ToshibaSat 8x14. The former is used by countless far-east assemblies as the standard latin-alphabet on product stickers and such and I have always wondered why they would use such a distinctive typeface. Turns out it is a 1987 standard charset from a japanese パーソナルシステム/55. The latter was the text mode charset on display in a very old monochrome toshiba satellite laptop I ran MSDOS on in my youth. The alternative command prompt look was modern and refreshing and I had just learned that there are more typefaces than the well-known IBM EGA 8x14 on some platforms.

If you dig it, start reminiscing with The Ultimate Oldschool PC Font Pack by VileR.
