  • Blogspot Content Imported

    I enjoyed importing the coolnamehere content so much last weekend that I decided to import the posts from a neglected Blogspot blog this weekend. jekyll-import simplified the actual import process, though I still had a lot of manual cleanup to perform.

  • coolnamehere Content Update

    crappy old coolnamehere menu I made in GIMP

    I got bored of the old coolnamehere pages effectively sitting outside of the site because of the way Jekyll - and pretty much every other static blogging system - treats pages as secondary to posts.

My technique was good enough: track file sizes, find files that had the same file size and MD5 hash, and display the resulting list. It wasn’t foolproof, but it showed some thought. After spending a little too much time on the post, I realized I had never checked CPAN. Of course there is already a module to handle that exact task.
