And You Thought Gopher was Old School

MPH, in his continuing descent into madness, has replaced his blog with a static page. That’s only a little old school. What’s really old school is that the static page is generated via a PHP script from his dot-plan file, which is conveniently written in Markdown.

And you can actually get the markdown version (if you’re on a unix box or the equivalent) by issuing the ‘finger’ command on his username mph at puddingbowl dot org. Truth.

### since you're just joining:

why have a blog when you can have a PAGE!? As it changes, new stuff'll be colored or something.  Old stuff will slide away, unarchived anywhere but the Overmind.

  1. Wow, I didn’t know *anyone* ran finger daemons anymore. That totally rocks. Scott Yanoff ran his “list” for years in his .plan file.
