Lacking Natural Simplicity

Random musings on books, code, and tabletop games.

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've moved everything to Nikola.

  • 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.

  • PyBloxsom worked well enough for my needs, but it was a little slow, probably the fault of how I had set it up. When I stopped maintaining a webhost on the Internet I went into hiatus.

  • I've moved on to Nikola, a static site generator. All the text is still written in reStructuredText, and all the posts and pages from the first blog are again available.
