* src/post2meta: gensub argument fixMike Gerwitz2021-02-241-2/+2
| | | | | | | Older versions of Gawk did not mind an empty string as the third argument, but newer versions complain: warning: gensub: third argument `' treated as 1
* src/about.htm: GNU Social => Mastodon instance referenceMike Gerwitz2020-07-161-2/+1
| | | | I now use the latter exclusively.
* src/about.html: {two=>three} sonsMike Gerwitz2020-07-161-1/+1
| | | | My third was born recently.
* Writing As a Means to Another End: New postMike Gerwitz2020-06-301-0/+157
| | | | This is a deeply personal one.
* Makefile: +x scripts copied into www-rootMike Gerwitz2020-05-201-0/+2
* style.css (article details > summary): pointerMike Gerwitz2020-05-201-0/+4
* style.css: Add missing h5, h6 stylingMike Gerwitz2020-03-311-1/+3
* Better figure stylingMike Gerwitz2020-03-311-1/+9
| | | | | | | Figures will have margins on the left and right sides by default, unless explicitly denoted "inline". The caption will also be a lighter typeface rather than bold. When the figure caption appears at the bottom, it will have a top border.
* src/post2html: Ability to reference content of previous fenceMike Gerwitz2020-03-311-0/+9
| | | | | | | | | I'll be using this to show example HTML code and then output it as actual HTML to be rendered as part of the article. Otherwise the HMTL has to be duplicated and maintained in multiple places. An alternative is to include a file, but that is much less convenient for smaller snippets.

* style.css (article pre): Reduce line-heightMike Gerwitz2020-03-311-0/+3
* src/post2html (prefmt): Ties and newline strippingMike Gerwitz2020-03-311-1/+32
| | | | | | | I hate Markdown as a format for disciplined writing, especially when I want macros (mostly semantic), indexes, and such. I was originally going to use LaTeX with Pandoc, but it lacks support for inline HTML and such, and I do not want to distract too much from the work that I want to be doing.
* COVID-19: Update link to current pandemicMike Gerwitz2020-03-161-1/+1
* Tagline change: Activist for User FreedomMike Gerwitz2020-03-161-1/+1
| | | | | This more accurately represents my cause. I will let this sit for a little while and see how I like it.

* GNU Social -> Mastodon link in headerMike Gerwitz2020-02-131-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | Over the past year, my GNU Social timeline has gone almost completely silent; it seems that many people have moved to Mastodon and maybe those instances have stopped federating. Further, GNU Social development has been stalled for a long time. So this seems like an inevitable decision to give Mastodon a try. I'll start by following people and will post both on here and GNU Social initially. See https://social.mikegerwitz.com.
* developer=>engineerMike Gerwitz2019-12-082-2/+2
| | | | | | This better describes my experience and responsibilities, though I have never been particularly comfortable with the term. My manager describes me as an engineer in my current position anyway.
* src/about.htm: Add GAC referenceMike Gerwitz2019-12-061-8/+9
* resume: {over eighteen=>nearly twenty}Mike Gerwitz2019-09-301-1/+1
| | | | Forgot to correct this last time I was in there.
* resume: Update and trimMike Gerwitz2019-08-061-98/+55
* src/index.sh: Correct index aside linksMike Gerwitz2019-08-051-2/+2
| | | | Unbelievable...this has always been broken.
* githubbub: Minor updatesMike Gerwitz2019-05-091-16/+1
| | | | | | I do not have time to update the features that do not work without JS, though admittedly they have done a good job of providing fallbacks to some of the things that are listed here.
* Add LP2019 talk cs4m video linkMike Gerwitz2019-05-091-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | Was finally published. This year they included the slides in the video, which is perfect, since this was a technical talk that used the slides to demonstrate the commands, and I actually did some stuff on the computer during the talk. Though the PIP did slightly cut off some commands; see the PDF or Org sources for the full commands.
* Fix Copyleft vs. Community linksMike Gerwitz2019-04-072-1/+2
* talks: Add event linkMike Gerwitz2019-03-252-1/+7
* src/talks.rec (cs4m): Correct date 201{8=>9}Mike Gerwitz2019-03-251-1/+1
* src/talks.sh (abstract): Include location in timestampMike Gerwitz2019-03-251-1/+1
* src/talks.sh: Do not output watch link text if missing video-urlMike Gerwitz2019-03-251-3/+12
| | | | | This is the case right now with cs4m, since I just gave the talk and the video will not likely be available for a couple of weeks.
* Makefile ({talks,papers}.html): src/%.sh dependencyMike Gerwitz2019-03-251-2/+2
| | | | This was forgotten.
* Makefile (default): {www-root=>webroot}Mike Gerwitz2019-03-251-1/+1
| | | | This was never renamed.
* Add lp2019 talk cs4mMike Gerwitz2019-03-255-1/+45
* lp2019 post: Update abstractMike Gerwitz2019-03-051-17/+12
| | | | | | | It had to be shortened to 100 words. This also more accurately reflects what I will be talking about; it will be a slower pace than I had originally anticipated, and will focus a bit more on some core philosophical concepts. But it will still be interesting to both hackers and non-technical users.
* Makefile: License header fixMike Gerwitz2019-03-041-2/+2
| | | | Mangled accidentally by a {dist=>www } replacement.
* 2019-02-15-i-will-be-speaking-at-lp2019: Update with location (Stata Center)Mike Gerwitz2019-02-211-3/+2
| | | | Just announced, finally. I get nervous when I can't visualize my travels. :)
* rss: Fix header link and redirect broken linksMike Gerwitz2019-02-212-1/+2
| | | | | | I noticed a lot of odd `/rss.xml' requests in my 404 log. As it turns out, it was my fault. This both fixes it and adds a redirect in case someone tries to do this manually. I suppose that'd be convenient.
* post: GHCQ's Exceptional AccessMike Gerwitz2019-02-182-0/+977
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Wow. I had wanted to spend less than an hour on a response, and instead I wound up writing my largest article since the NSA revelations and GHS. Hopefully others find this useful. I've been sitting on this for weeks because I didn't have the time to finish final proofreading and changes. I need to release this before I sit on it for another couple; I have to start working on my LP2019 talk soon. * post/2019-02-18-ghcq-exceptional-access-e2ee-decentralization-reproducible.md: New post. * src/papers.rec: Add post to top.
* rss: Clarify that RSS content is the abstractMike Gerwitz2019-02-161-1/+4
| | | | | | | | | I'm still debating whether to include the full text of the post within the RSS feed, since some of them may be substantial (like the one I'll be posting soon that I've been sitting on for a couple weeks because I'm too busy/lazy to do final editing). * src/rss.sh: Add "(Read full post)" link.
* footer: Add RSS linkMike Gerwitz2019-02-161-0/+1
| | | | | | Oops. * src/footer.tpl.htm: Add `RSS Feed' link.
* css: Prevent preload inline from overriding stylesheetMike Gerwitz2019-02-161-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | The inlined CSS intended to make the stylesheet applicaton less jarring on slow connections was placed _after_ `style.css', which was causing it to take precedence over the mobile layout. Silly mistake, and not good. And it went unnoticed for too long; I didn't visit my own website on mobile for a bit. Sorry, mobile people! * src/header.tpl.htm (head): Move style.css link below inline style.
* post: I Will Be Speaking At LibrePlanet 2019Mike Gerwitz2019-02-151-0/+33
* style.css: Better delimit sections and mute footnotesMike Gerwitz2019-02-071-2/+10
| | | | | | | | This increases the headings, gives them slightly larger margins, decreases the font size for footnotes, decreases the line-height, and lightens the weight of the font. I think this makes it easier to eyeball the different sections (especially in the article I will be publishing shortly), and further helps to emphasize that the footnotes are subservient to the text.
* Generate inline CSS for page headerMike Gerwitz2019-01-195-22/+48
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | The idea here is to provide as little CSS as is sensible for the initial page load to be styled in a layout similar to the final layout. This initial styling may be briefly visible on a slow conection. Slow connections can happen for a variety of reasons. For example, I'm a Tor user, and connection speeds vary. Mobile connection speeds can also vary wildly. This adds a few hundred bytes, but I was able to cut it down quite a bit, and I don't find this to be unreasonable relative to the other data on each page.
* style.css: Maximum header widthMike Gerwitz2019-01-181-1/+2
| | | | | This is the maximum width of the posts page. It does not look good to have the header span the whole page on a 4K monitor.
* style.css: cgit font override for consistencyMike Gerwitz2019-01-181-1/+3
* style.css: Minor fixes and warning for IE11 usersMike Gerwitz2019-01-181-0/+19
| | | | | | | I only noticed this issue because my work computer has IE11 installed. I will not be supporting it. Edge works just fine and IE is just about extinct, finally. Of couse, I recomend using a free/libre browser.
* src/index.sh: Set sapsf talk linkMike Gerwitz2019-01-181-1/+1
| | | | Wow, the most prominant link on the page and I forgot to set it.
* post/2013-01-26-re-fsf-wastes-away-another-high-priority-project.md: Remove ↵Mike Gerwitz2019-01-171-1/+1
| | | | duplicate word typo
* style.css: Consistent colors for header bordersMike Gerwitz2019-01-171-2/+2
* style.css (blockquote): Add left border and remove right marginMike Gerwitz2019-01-171-0/+6
| | | | | This also is better for lower resolutions / higher font sizes, since the right margin is spared.
