I suppose I should post an #introduction.
Today: took kids to the park to enjoy this beautiful weather. Got back, set up a GitHub account for my daughter and showed her the basics of Git using ‘gitk’ as the client. Also got Nasu compiled and running, but an hour of technical stuff got her younger sister jealous and so we must break until tomorrow.

Blog Post: Nest Micropub - First Steps
Now and then I feel like it would be convenient to be able to post quick notes, or to quickly save bookmarks, here on my blog. The obvious IndieWeb solution would be to add Micropub support.
