New blog

I decided to migrate my old Zine blog to blohg. Blohg is a static site generator that uses ReStructured Text, mercurial, Flask, and Frozen-Flask for the backend. This should be easier to keep up to date.

I am also shutting down my DreamhostPS. The service was alright, but recently it kept getting restarted for going over its quota, even though it was very under-utilized. Also, I have been using ep.io and Dotcloud for all my new python web app experiments.

The new blog is also using a design made by my buddy Joe. Thank you Joe!

If you use Windows, here's another little twist: Windows + Pause/Break brings up the System Properties on a standard keyboard, but Windows+Ctrl+Fn+F12 doesn't work. Instead, you have to use Windows + Fn + F12.

Also, here's the history of the Pause/Break key. Fascinating...!
