Over the past week I’ve been putting this website back together (using Jekyll
and Minimal Mistakes.)
It’s been an adventure.
Back in 2005, I built WormBytes using a custom built static website generator
written in Perl’s Template Toolkit. After a couple of years I had moved on
to Ruby and I stopped updating the site.
In September of 2009 my wife, Roselle Kaes, and I found out we were to be
parents. I felt this should be documented
so I resurrected the site on
The WordPress site was a short lived experiment (less than eight months!)
That’s where the site sat until 2016 when the super old computer I was using as
a server (a machine that used to run my ISP Flarenet and which had been
sitting in my parent’s basement) finally died.
WormBytes as a web presence ceased to exist. :(
A former coworker at ePublishing, Christopher Coleman, asked me to publish
some of the software development practises we’ve developed at ePublishing.
It’s a brilliant idea, but I had no where to put the articles.
