So I have been writing my book in #nano then lately I have switched to #Pandoc for export into #EPUB. There is a single issue I have: u00f8 doesn't translate properly with Pandoc. It throws an error and displays odd characters insteadof the one I was going for. Anyone have a remedy for me?

I hate to drag you in, but @klaatu you are one of the few people I know that uses Pandoc. You and @brandon

Okay, so this is a little off the cuff, but I got my thoughts out on my blog.

Education & Productivity

I didn't proofread it, so forgive any errors in spelling or grammar. This is pure stream of consciousness.

I wrote a little article about ASCIIDoc and how it has been a net benefit to my writing career. I hope you enjoy. It is a short article, so it shouldn't be a long read. Just a few thoughts.

To my #Slackware friends out there, how cool would it be to have a set of stickers to adorn your laptops and cars and all manner of things with the Slackware logo and other things like that? Since the Slackware store is gone, you have to make your own. It is pretty cheap on Sticker Mule, but minimum order is 50 stickers for custom stickers.

I was thinking about even if there was a lot of interest, I could order like 500 and sell them for a little profit, then send that profit to Volkerding.

Alright, I have a little write-up for the Static Site / Static Blog Generator I have been using.

#TopPodcasts

Here's a list of my 3 favorite podcasts for tech-life:

#GNUWorldOrder

Linux Podcast and general GNU paraphernalia talk. @klaatu is the host with his nice coffee breaks and Slackware as a base.

#TheLundukeShow

@lunduke hosts this podcast with his quirky humor and fun projects! I don't know his favorite/current distro. πŸ˜”

#Reality2.0

@linuxjournal puts this one on. They also have interesting discussion about the whole tech world.

Enjoy!

@alcinnz
I have been reading different sections of this since yesterday. Thank you for sharing! This is fantastic reading!

@jason
How much you think you could fetch for it? πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

@brandon
I could almost see them rolling it into their Librem Social app as like a tab or something.

@vancha
Dang, this is tough... I forgot I was still on Fedilab
@poetgrant

@vancha
There isnt a fed timeline... which makes me think they must be developing a different way... otherwise, this is going to be rough.

I'm thinking about using my account for a bit to get a better feel of how it will work for the enduser that is unfamiliar with Mastodon.

Anyone want to follow me? @poetgrant

I am not sure I want to since I have built a home here at Fosstodon. But I am really curious.

@m4iler
You could make an XML tag and figure out how to incorporate it into your Pelican setup.

Pelican is wonderful because it is Python, the language of 'hackers' hehehe.

You'll have to figure out Jinja2 in order to make your own theme. It is pretty time-intensive.

As far as portfolios go, I am pretty sure there's a way to do it with Pelican, but I can't remember how. I always just kept an updated PDF on my 'about' page.

@m4iler
Also, Pelican is my second most favorite Static Site Generator ever! Second only to bash blog... but as far as I know, bash blog only generates a stream of posts. Pelican generates a whole site. So perhaps it is is actually my favorite.

@m4iler
Well if your microblogging habits are interesting, your macroblogging habits have to be fun! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

I couldn't get to my own site sadly for a long time.

I tried the Lunduke way and just ran HTTP but no one could get to my site. It was very upsetting. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
@m4iler

@m4iler
I've been waiting for the day that you had a website! Also, are you using Pelican?? πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
