Watch Out for Wet Paint

This site recently relaunched which I must assume you haven't noticed because the traffic I get to the site is fairly insubstantial. Apart from the new coat of paint I made a change to the underlying technology that powers this site. Previously, I used Mike Watts' static blogging engine [staticDimension][2] but I have since made the switch to the ever popular [Jekyll][3].

Switching to Jekyll brought a number of advantages, not the least of which was finer control over the functionality and generation process.[1] I wanted to make my archives section more accessible, to streamline the updating process, and expand my own horizons if only slightly. It's questionable whether I accomplished any of these goals in the switch, however, I'm not letting that stop me from rambling on.

Working the Archives


  1. I am no coder, I can hack into things rather terribly but whatever hasn't been already done I cannot do for myself in this regard. Hence, extending Mr. Watts' software to better suit my needs was out of the picture. ↩︎


Nope. Don't worry about leaving them here, instead hit me up @TRST_Blog and share your thoughts.

What is this Place?

This is the weblog of the strangely disembodied TRST. Here it attempts to write somewhat intelligibly on, well, anything really. Overall, it may be less than enticing.
