Some tools I like

What date is next Thursday?
If you have ever clicked on the time in the system tray or Googled for “calendar”, then I am about to blow your mind.
Just use the
cal UNIX command!
Why is my blog loading so slow?
Have you optimized your images? No? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
(Warning: your MacBook might sound like a jet engine while this runs…)
I need to make a quick web page. Should I install WordPress?
No, please, no! Why not try out Jekyll — an awesome static site generator?
I’ve used it to make:
- This blog
- Websites for meetup groups: IndySA, Indy Startup Lab, Indy Tech Table Tennis League
- Stupid single page sites: Most Precise Weather
And with Jekyll 1.3’s new
_data files feature, you can easily turn Jekyll into
a mini CMS powered by YAML files. Sky’s the limit now, folks!
