|Most of the day was spent poking at things.
I've been fussing over what font to use for Background Service's relaunch, and this round I went to see what other people thought of the fonts I've singled out. Amusingly, the one that's the most popular is the one I used originally, so nothing really changed there.
Another interesting thing that happened was that I answered a question about what blog software to use with a glib suggestion to write it themselves like I had done. Long story short, this started a small conversation about possibly releasing my blog's code as Open Source. It's incredibly small ( 617 lines, 17 KB ), so novices could manage it easily or integrate it with their existing sites. I hadn't thought of releasing the code at all, and once I did I didn't see a reason not to do so.
So I've added another project to my plate; namely making a GPL version of the code that's easy for other people to use. I made good headway on it this evening; it can't yet interact with a database, but the templating code is working properly and benchmarks are roughly the same as the original code.
