Welcome to the blog

Welcome to the new Ape Boy Monkey Girl blog. My name is Chris Rockwell Breshears and the goal of this blog is to document my experiments in electronics, code, pinball and art.

I am in no way an expert on any of these topics, but love to always be learning something new. Feel free to comment how dumb or wrong I am on any subject, I am always looking for a better way to tackle a project.

The blog is published with nanoc which is a publishing system that outputs static web sites. It is much different than Word Press or other blog engines in that there is no content management actually done within the system. You write the pages in simple markdown format, and the code on your local system compiles it to static pages. While you lose the dynamic functionality, you gain speed and security since there is no code or database that is required to run. For most blogs this is a prefect and simple solution. I did run into a few roadblocks using it and I will write more about those later.
