Hello World!

I finally got around to buying a domain and setting up a blog. Now I have my own space on the interwebs!

I’m currently using Jekyll to take my posts, written in markdown, and auto-generate a static website. Then I upload the files to Amazon S3 and let it do what it does best: serve static content for pennies a gigabyte. I love this setup so far because it affords me complete control over my domain, yet it is dirt cheap.

This website is version controlled on github, so feel free to send me pull requests for spelling and grammar corrections, or anything else! The web sure has come a long way since I wrote my first php blog in 2005. Back then, the coolest feature I created was auto-updating comments inspired by this new-fangled tech gmail was using!
