My prior Jekyll setup was as such:

  1. Jekyll installed on Amazon EC2 instance.
  2. Template/files generated on EC2 instance.
  3. Uploaded content to template/work directory as needed.

I’ve since decided that was “A Bad Idea™”, and have chosen to offload the work from the EC2 instance to my FreeBSD machine instead, updating content with rysnc as it’s generated. This poses a few minor annoyances for the moment. First, the DSL I’m connected to is currently crawling at a snail’s pace. However, the nice thing is that you, the reader, don’t see all my ugly fuckups as they happen. Instead, you only get to see the pretty pre-formatted pages as they’re ready for print. That’s a major advantage. As I learn Maruku, you’re not forced to watch me painfully learn it’s syntax. Good stuff, huh?

Well, that’s it for an update today. I know, it sucks, but it’s not like I have all the time in the world to just blog all day.

UPDATE: I really suck at file permissions. You may or may not notice a lot of 403 errors. Go ahead and ignore those, I’ll figure this out eventually.

MOAR UPDATE: I think I’m retarded. Thatisall. Also, I love rsync. It’s the best thing since sliced bread.
