Thanks to Lulie Tanett for help improving the blog colors and design.
FYI I also added some caching, some links on my More page, and some links in the (edited) "I'm an American, atheist, classical liberal, and philosopher. I like Ayn Rand, Karl Popper, William Godwin & Ludwig von Mises." sidebar bio.
And I added *italics*, **bold**, ***bold-italics***, and >quote colors to comments. (Put one or more > at the start of the line for quotes.)
Update: I got a new linode with Debian instead of the very old ubuntu I had. I got new versions of nginx and passenger, and I got rails 2.3 LTS. I migrated from mysql to sqlite3. I added 3 db indexes and enabled gzip compression for nginx. The result: utf8 unicode is now fully supported including emoji in comments! And things should be more secure and a little faster. 😎
Update 2: I added an RSS Feed For Comments. You can now get updated on blog comments with an RSS reader, not just new posts.
(Just testing. Feel free to delete.)
💩, 🐕. 👌⬆️🗓. 👍🕸👁.
testing bold and italics emoji
> 🇺🇸🇺🇸 quote!
chrome is stupid and makes bold emoji invisible.
oh well whatever, ignoring.
> Mr. Hannity introduced the show by asking: “Do we need to consider… a cultural divide before taking people into our country”, pointing to the subjugation of women in Muslim majority countries.
> He asking if the West should, “find out whether people are coming here because they don’t like living under such tyranny, and that they believe in equal rights for women, or, do they want to come here and advocate and advance values that are contrary to the Constitution?”
Great fucking question.
More the breitbart link:
> “Merkel isn’t the only dumpy old hag thats for mass migration… If Hilary is elected, you can see her doing exactly what Angela Merkel has done”, he said.
> “This election is not going to be about the economy. This election is not going to be about fighting ISIS. This election is going to be about the future demographics of the United States of America.”
> He pointed out the Chancellor Merkel’s unprecedented mass migration policy was passed by her ‘conservative’ Christian Democrat party. “Can you imagine what a left wing party would do in the United States of America?”
> “[Merkel] brought in 1.5 million – [Hillary would] take 20 million in heart beat” warned Mr. Kassam.
In addition to the RSS feed for blog posts, I added one for comments. Find it linked at http://curi.us/more
This will give people another way to keep up with new comments, besides the recent comments page on the sidebar. Hope it helps!
