I've made some fairly significant changes to my blog's layout. Most importantly, I've added a cow's bum. I've said it before and I'll say it again: You simply can't go wrong with cow-based web site layouts. I still have a bit more work to do (for another day) but I think it turned out OK.
This went smoothly largely thanks to Debian. I spent an hour or so today setting up my Debian box as a mirror of my blog. It really was simple and easy and most of all extremely fast. I had some weird problems though; for example apparently bzip2 isn't installed on Debian by default (???). That's a first. But hey, it installs in 5 seconds, so it's not a huge problem. Mmmm, non-source-based distro. Samba also was extremely easy to set up. I noticed that Debian's samba comes with a rather more sane default config file than Gentoo's, which is something I think I've noticed about Debian in general.
