11/26/2003: Blosxom

This site is implemented as web log (or “blog”) using a software package called Blosxom.

This program is very extendable, and so i’ve added a number of third-party plugins and some of my own design.

Because of the “blog” style of this site, every page on it is timestamped, so you can browse the site either by topic or chonologically.

You may also subscribe to the RSS feeds provided by the site, just like any other blog.

Technical Note

Blosxom has one design choice which I intensely dislike (relying on file mtimes for dates), but wrote a script deal with it. Since I keep my dates in the entry titles, I wrote a script which reads these titles in and fixes the file modification times.

If you want the script, here it is: fixdates.pl
