If you think that any part of this site could be improved, please let me know also.

For building this site, I have used free, or at least open source, software and documentation. Specificaly, I have used the following items:

  • I use tiddlywiki for write, edit, delete and search documents. I wrote a simple script for convert JSON exported wiki entries to Markdown files.
  • GNU Make for compiling documents. It basically calls Pandoc
  • Ruby and ERB are used for making small scripts for generating Atom syndication files
  • A modified Pan-am CSS file
  • The darkhttpd web server for testing purposes and for generating correcly the screenshots
  • Imagemagick and ffmpeg for image and video conversion
  • For managing comments, I wrote a simple program in flask. Previously, I used isso.
  • I use the image “Jugar Música Películas Portátil 468292” by Mediengestalter CC0 licensed reescaled at 240x240 pixels for making shots of videos.
  • This site is hosted in Linode. You can use the referal code 5500f43490f9b199360a9a95c2b541281e542100 for letting me to earn $20 in credit
