This site holds an irregularly published set of articles on Linux and Programming; articles will be added as I discover interesting things that others might also want to read about.

Posts and Articles
The content on this site is divided into two types. “Posts” are typical blog entries - personal, related to a specific time, and seldom updated afterwards. “Articles” are descriptions of how things work, and may well be revised/rewritten due to feedback or as I learn more. Often, a short blog post will be used to point out newly written or significantly updated articles.
There may also be articles that no “post” refers to; they can be found via the “Categories” links.

This site is published with nanoc. The categories code was inspired by this post. The theme borrows some ideas and icons from the octopress Oct2 theme, and particularly the hand-sketched navigation icons from charfish. Pages are mostly in markdown format (with extensions) and are processed by kramdown.
