I woke up and decided to contribute.
I thought to write a technically oriented blog. And I started doing that. But I didn't like the look or functionality of any of the blog platforms I tried. I could have simply settled or compromised for the existing solutions, but that would not be very technically oriented, would it?
So then I thought to write a blog, as in coding one. And I got started on such a project, using Python.
Holy crap that was a lot of work for the average night or weekend. But the more I learned about templating languages, like Jinja, the more I realized I could create what I wanted by building a theme with a templating language, like Jinja... if only I could find a suitable platform to run that on top of. And one day, I found it.
Click around on this blog and you'll see how fast everything loads. That is due to the distinct lack of the following.
inefficient flash code
knee-jerk political pretense forgettable after 24 hours
meaningless lists that add no value to the world
THE IRONED CURTAIN uses the ASCII character set, as well as bold font-weight for hyperlinks. That's it. The entire thing could be transcribed by a hipster equipped with a manual typewriter.
Looking ahead, this blog will be about technology, sometimes. It will more of the time be about details. It is in details that we are all unique, and I hope you will find the content here to be unique, as well.
