About the blog

What I write about

Random musings about books, computers, tabletop role-playing games, and miscellaneous bits.

Tools I use to write

All the text is written using Emacs in reStructuredText and formatted by Docutils. The blog software used to be PyBloxsom, but after a hiatus, I moved everything to Nikola. The Colophon has more details.

  • Emacs is still the best editor that I've found.

  • reStructuredText hits the sweet spot between simple text markup on the one hand and well structured and good looking output in a multitude of formats on the other hand.
