I’ve been thinking about creating a blog to make notes and have a place to keep cheatsheets and useful links. (My memory is getting rusty as I get older and wiser!)
I started out installing Wordpress… its a great blogging environment and CMS, but its overkill for my purposes. Besides, I use a cheap web hosting service, and running all that PHP slows things down.
So I decided to use markdown, which looks to be a very popular markup language, especially for developers. It’s used for GitHub wikis and readmes, and is turning up in lots of other places. It can be used to write books, for example Pro Git
What you see is the result.
