We should've stopped--but let's keep going and see what happens.

First Impressions on Octopress

So, I’m starting over and going to try actually blogging—goal is a simple once-a-week, and if the chain builds, maybe we’ll see what happens.

First thing: making a new post is annoying: rake new_post is cool and all, but you really need to modify the Rakefile to automatically fire up a text editor once it’s been run, like so:

1
2
# at the end of writing the file in the new_post task:
Kernel.system('vim', filename)

Et voila, a text editor appears once you make a new post!

Next thing to worry about is deployment—the smart thing to do would be throwing this up on Github pages or Cloudflare, but let’s be honest: that’s not really my style.

Sooooo, I think the answer is a dumb little cronjob to pull the repo every half day and update.

Or, y’know, just manually update the damned thing until I’ve been hit with some divine inspiration.

EDIT:

Derp derp derp I should probably put a bit to commit to Github after I’m done writing—now wouldn’t that be something.
