# Hello.

My name is Andrew and this is my blog. I suppose I should start off with something useful other than a Hello World post, so I’ll talk about the blogging software that I’m using: Jekyll, specifically a modified clone of _layout. I’m sure the modifications will only grow more as time goes on. Let’s play with some markdown syntax…

I chose Jekyll because * I enjoy the idea of statically serving my site * I can setup git post-hooks to automagically regenerate the site * of my affinity towards Ruby

Let’s try out some pygments syntax highlighting. Here is the command I used to delete the example posts:

find . -type f -name "*example*" -exec rm {} \;


I suppose we should talk about what this does, since find seems to be the most under used (by newer users), yet powerful *nix utilities ever.

find .            \ # search this directory and subdirectories
-type f           \ # search for only files (don't include directories)
-name "*example*" \ # only get files with the word example somewhere in them
-exec rm {}       \ # remove each file returned
\;                  # syntax to tell exec that we are done


## P.S.

Hopefully by the time you read this post the code will be in monospace, can’t seem to figure out why my changes to the css haven’t shown up.

## P.P.S.

So, monospace is fixed and a bug with the code alignment on widescreens is fixed as well. I’m glad that I let _layout do the heavy lifting.
