Oh, Hi, I'm Still Here

Wow, forgot about the tilde blog! Well, 17 months isn't that long, is it?

Hmm, the default date stamp has changed from Mountain Time to UTC... and it's got the year in the wrong place. Guess I'll have to tweak that.

Another Way To Blog

It seems there is an existing tildeblog script called bb (bashblog) that I could have used here instead.

I'd try it, but it writes to /blog, which would overwrite my existing blog, and I don't know how to override that.

Oh well. Things to play with while the pandemic rages...

I Like Weird Clocks and I Cannot Lie

I put my favorite little SVG clock in the sidebar (courtesy of Steve Pomeroy) so you will know what time it is. You're welcome.

How Simple Can You Get?

I know there are still many flat-file CMS platforms out there, some even geared for blogging. But I think pretty much all modern ones use PHP, Javascript, etc. etc. How many are really really simple? Nanoblogger is mainly bash scripts. Similarly there were programs like Blosxom which was just one big Perl script. And of course, Graymatter comes to mind as the granddaddy of them all.

What other dead-simple blogging platforms still exist?

A Little Tilde Blog

I thought I'd stick with what I know, and pull out this old blogging platform from the past. Nanoblogger is the kind of thing that fits in with the aesthetic: shell-script driven and CLI operated. It doesn't get more basic than this!

I hope to update this soon! Glad to be here!
