a tumblelog

First Post

Back in 2003 I started my first microblog. This is a continuation of this blog and it runs aside my new full blog. This tumblelog will be dedicated to short posts, notes, quotes, and link dumps.

I wrote the code that generates this static site in Perl and it will be soon available via my GitHub page.

The current layout is heavily based on the well-known tumblelog Anarchaia. Colors where picked from the Emacs Soothe theme by Jason Milkins.

What the Plurrrrrr!

Years ago I bought the domain plurrr.com. Yesterday I started coding tumblelog.pl, the program that generates the static pages for this site, planning to use this domain. And today I noticed that I had let go this domain some time ago. So I just added one additional r. And hurray, plurrrr.com was available.

A Simple Makefile Tutorial

Used a simple makefile tutorial to create a small Makefile that generates the pages for this site via tumblelog.pl and uploads the local version of this site using rsync.
