Welcome to esmithy.net. A "smithy" is the workplace of a smith, so "esmithy" is this particular smith's electronic workplace.
I write here in hopes that my thoughts will be useful to someone -- including my future self who, strangely, tends to forget things.
esmithy.net was a static web site before such things were cool, using XSLT and an Ant script. For several years I switched over to use WordPress to make posting a simpler process. But blogs are every programmer's place to fiddle with technologies, so I'm back to static using Pelican.
