About This Site


This site is generated as static HTML via middleman, and the source is available on GitHub. The site history page provides further background.

Styling is strongly assisted by Normalize.css and a few icons from Font Awesome. It’s all hosted on a little Ubuntu slice in Rackspace Cloud (née Slicehost).


listener Google Analytics is used for usage tracking and may drop a cookie on you. I’ve set my account to not share tracking data, but you have no way to validate that and I have no way to confirm that Google honors this setting.

Other external resources are referenced, including Twitter’s scripts for explicit pop-ups and Microsoft’s CDN for jQuery. On the homepage a few extras are loaded: JSON and assets from Tumblr and a Flickr script which insists on loading a Yahoo geolocation script as well as requested assets. None of these should be using this to track you, but my control is limited so YMMV.

Search is via Tapir, which is called only when invoked and graciously provided by a little Dutch agency, 80 beans.
