Every time I write a post for my blog, it doesn’t feel right. The default WordPress editor just doesn’t cut it for me. There’s too much junk around the editor text box, the font isn’t right, the contrast is too high. So I decided to do something about it.

So I decided to convert some open source documentation and slap some css on it. Here are the preliminary results: Continue reading
This has been long overdue. I just updated my ruby 1.9.2 ppa to the final ruby 1.9.2 release. I borrowed the patches from the upstream maverick release and added a couple more patches to get it work on Ubuntu Lucid. The patching system has now changed from
