Did you successfully infiltrate the gopherhole? I didn't realize just how
fun gopher can be, and it was really nice to have a tiny fraction of the
feeling I got when I first learned basic HTML. I managed to write some
Python glue to translate my Jekyll blog to a gophermap. My script doesn't
support the Liquid templating that I sprinkle into some of my posts, and
the links and images are still to places on the Web, but the majority of
the content is there. I'm also looking for OC images of literal gophers to
post there. If you have any, please send them to me.
Speaking of blogs, have you got one? I run one on my personal site and
mirror it over here on ~club, and it's proven to be a nice place to put
words. It's a cute little static site, and it's just as minimal and
single-purpose as I want it to be. I don't even like writing that much,
but there's something nice about getting some of my thoughts out
This week, ~club, your challenge is to make a blog. Take that any way you
want to (long-form posts with Jekyll, Hugo, et. al., microblogs with some
other platform, homemade system, etc.). I've noticed that some of you have
your own versions of blogs and microblogs running here, and I think that's
great. In that case, your challenge is to update it. Make a new post,
change up the theme, whatever makes you happy.
In your excitement, don't forget the ~club rules: don't run a server or do
anything that takes up too much of any shared resource (disk, network,
memory). Shoot for a static site with optional JS and you'll be fine.
Once you've got something set up, please let us all know by replying here
with a link.
