Welcome to esmithy.net. A "smithy" is the workplace of a smith, so "esmithy" is the electronic parallel, where bits of code, ideas, thoughts and opinions are hammered out.
esmithy.net was a static web site before such things were cool, using XSLT and an Ant script. For several years it switched over to use WordPress to make posting a simpler process. But blogs are every programmer's place to fiddle with technologies, so it is back to static using Pelican.
