New Static Site

I had mentioned previously that I had taken up markdown blogging. At that time, I was writing my post in markdown, converting it to HTML, and then injecting it into blogger. This last week, I have done a good bit of work to convert my site to a "static site" using Pelican. A static site is made up entirely of static files - no database, no php includes, just your basic collection of html, javascript, css, and images. I write content in Markdown on my laptop. I develop my theme locally as well. Then I run "make html" and pelican will process my configuration file, my content, and my theme to generate all of the pages, posts, archive pages, and various rss feeds. The end result is a directory full of files that can be dropped onto pretty much any webserver.
