a blog about tildes and other things


September 05, 2018 — ~ben

i somehow stumbled upon utterances today at lunch. (i think someone had it forked on their github page).

no matter how i found it, i still decided to add it to my blog here with bashblog. utterances is a commenting system that leverages github issues. so, for example a comment on a post shows up on github like this.

now we just need to figure out if it can be pointed at a gitea instance like tildegit. might be time for a PR!

bashblog and your gopherhole

July 22, 2018 — ~ben

i've created a repo for the customizations to bashblog.

it will now make sure that your ~/public_gopher exists and symlink your blog into it with a nice gophermap to list all the markdown styled posts.

try it out and let me know if there are any problems!
