This is a list of questions (and answers) I stumbled over while designing this site. It is by no means a complete list and will most likely cover topics that are already documented elsewhere. I found many answers on stackoverflow questions tagged with Jekyll and links are given when still available. As almost always with such matter, stackoverflow is the #1 resource for such questions.

GitHub is not only the largest developer community on the net, they also offer lots of free services. Code repositories for free Open Source project are one thing, web hosting for simple static web sites another one. People might be curious whether such simple hosting without PHP, Java, Python or even a database really works.
It really depends on your needs, but I think, for the majority of simple blogs and/or personal homepages that are nowadays using Wordpress, it should work well.

The big question is: WHY? Why should someone give up all the innovations of the last 20 years or so that made the Web a dynamic, lively and social place and go back to publishing static HTML pages something we did 25 years ago? Doesn’t sound very logical, nor does it seem to make any sense, does it?

game of thrones season 7 is already over and to me it seems it just started last week, but in reality, it’s been 6 weeks ago. the shortest season so far brought a major events at an alarming rate and some of these events were unfortunately too predictable. this might, however, just be a side effect of the main plot approaching the final conclusion.
