Using Bootstrap 4's Reboot with Custom Variables
Using Hugo with Netlify
I don't know if you've been keeping up with Bootstrap lately, but their version 4.0 release is coming along quite nicely.

I found that I didn't particularly like working with MediaWiki, so I moved on to a different project and pretty much forgot all about it.
A few months later, I was shocked to realize there were nearly 100,000 items in the spam folder for the throwaway email address I set as the admin of the MediaWiki application.
