I have never been all that good at keeping up with this site but I continue getting emails informing that IPs are blocked. So many attempts to log in to the blog are made that I decided to take a look at alternatives. I have seen these static site generators around for a few years now and always meant to look into it. After looking around at the myriad options out there I focused on a python projects. I finally decided to take Nikola out for a spin, mainly because I liked the name. Installation was incredibly easy, it's sitting in the repos so an apt-get install was all that was needed. Then a few edits to a configuration file and it's ready to go. I have to learn some of the formatting syntax but whatever I get to write from the terminal and that makes me happy.
