Jekyll powered

This week we tinkered a bit and ported our entire site and blog to be generated by Jekyll, the system GitHub uses for their pages. Previously it was Enki and a couple of presentational pages, which was great, but our hackish attitude wanted something even simpler and our own.

The reason why Jekyll is awesome is that you start from scratch, can write posts in your favorite text editor and store all files in Git. It is simple, elegant and powerful - the best adjectives software can have.

With this switch we finally made this blog styled like the rest of the site. Discussion is outsourced to Disqus.
