About this blog
I learned many, many great things from different people’s blogs, so I decided that I should write a blog too, to show the world what I do and do not know. I hope that this blog will be helpful to you.
Tech behind this website
Because I am a tech person and I expect some tech persons to read this, here are the specs:
- Home server - Cheap and tiny Dell PC. It runs NixOS.
- Web server - Nginx, configured with NixOS.
- Site magic - Good ol’ Jekyll.
I tried rolling my own blog generator with shell scripts, but it felt “fragile”, so I started using Jekyll, which is a mature piece of software.
$CURRENT_YEARit might be considered old-fashioned, but it works. The theme I use is a modification of vida.
For legacy reasons, my main website is based on a handwritten static site generator I made in less than a day some years ago: orator.
