A new website ..and hopefully new content new-personal-site published 2022-08-23 cm blog

I've left my site in a bit of a state for a while now and figured it was probably well over-due a bit of a clean-up.

This new site is completely static, just using a fairly simple Python script to generate the website from a set of XML-esque HTML files containing both the metadata for each page (such as the title, slug, date, etc) as well as the content of the page itself. The text you're reading here is from one of them.

I chose to use XML for the content files since it fit nicely with being able to in-line the HTML content of the page within it.

I'm planning to post interesting things, solutions to annoying problems I've run into and other bits like that here.
