I spent the greater part of my free time over the last two weeks reworking my blog.
Before it ran on Pyblosxom as a CGI process (yes---a CGI process). It had accrued a decade of sediment, redirects, hacks, hacks on hacks, etc (yes---a decade). It was kind of messy and---worse---it really impaired my ability to blog easily. That sucked.
Now it runs on Pyblosxom, but it's statically rendered with a post-receive hook from a git repository. The work flow for blogging is a lot easier and I can test things out locally before pushing them live. I also ditched a bunch of silly things in the blog.
I also ditched comments. I might at some point switch to using something like talka.tv, but most of the time people were writing comments as a response or a reply to me---not intending to be part of a bigger discussion with other readers. Given that, I ditched comments. No sense in spending the time maintaining them if they don't really get used. Instead, email me.
