If I ever got a tattoo, it should probably look like this. It would save me a lot of time...

Is vorbisgain still the de-dacto unixy way to add replaygain to vorbis?

That's some old software! OpenBSD port upgraded to latest version 17 years ago by a developer I don't recognise the name of!

Goodbye Bytemark! You served me well, but now it's time to go.

Until recently those "defeat optimisations" inline asm blocks (the ones you see in C and C++ code) had been pure magic to me.

Well, I pulled apart Google's `DoNotOptimize()` and (with encouragement from Laurie Tratt
) wrote it up as a blog post:


Any recommendations for a static site generator that I can use for my website? Ideally would have python scripting support and the ability to blog in markdown. Oh and must run easy on .
