One of my excuses for not updating this more often is the fiddly nature of making sure I have a working Pelican install. I mean, the real reason is laziness, but that's a handy excuse.

"Woudn't it be great", my insomnia-brain said to itself, "If I could just check a markdown file into git and everything just happened?".

So, a bit of fiddling later, a combination of GitHub Pages and a GitHub Action does just that. So, no more excuses, right?

The repo will give you an idea of how to go about it if you feel like emulating. It still ticks my box of "I have the content in a form that can be used to publish elsewhere if I want", so nerd brain is also happy.

Hopefully longer post incoming, I guess I have some news, right?

Excuse the Dust

Thu 19 June 2014

Still fiddling with Pelican -- it's got a reasonably nice codebase, but the devs don't appear to be all that responsive. I've had to patch a few of their outstanding pull requests already to get things working just-so, this one most notably. Also some fiddling with setting up a lightbox for …

Tap tap tap

Wed 18 June 2014

So here's another attempt at keeping a log of some kind. the last one died because I stopped having (what I saw as) interesting things on it, blogger's editor bugged the fuck out of me, and general forgetting.

Part of my problem with having a web log is in the …
