Machine made is not hand made

I gotta say, looking at all the recent tilde club updated pages, I'm envious of those hand-coding a single page blog. The simplicity is appealing as it definitely speaks to the nature of the entire tilde club experiment, but I really wanted something to manage entries when they need to scroll off the front page.

I must admit though, in voting for convenience I am giving up a lot of personality in the process, and this probably mirrors the blogging “boom” of 1999 when we first got tools to manage posts but suddenly handmade single one-off pages started to be increasingly rare.

I wouldn't encourage anyone to use the tools I am, I really like what others are doing by hand a lot more and may scrap this whole blog engine thing in the end.

Pointless nostalgia isn’t proper nostalgia if you don’t stick to the original tools.
