A Challenger Approacheth!

It feels relaxing to have a relatively minimal site again. One that isn’t a meager script with Markdown posts piped to cat for the layout and ending off with M4 for macro postprocessing. Thankfully, such monstrosities were lost to the reaches of time and CDs going bad faster than anticipated.

$ # The old way:
$ markdown <post.md | cat header.htm - footer.htm | m4 >post.htm
$ # The new way:
$ jekyll build

Back then, I didn’t write often enough to warrant much more automation such as indexing the list of posts. Also back then, I didn’t publish either.
