Hello everyone! After many years of using a massively hacked-up version of dcoombs's NITLog page generator to host these pages, I've become, er, concerned, about the security of the ancient version of PHP I was using to host it. I tossed the whole thing out and rewrote it in python. The new thing doesn't really have a name, but let's call it PyNitLog.

My, how the web has moved on in the last 13 years or so! Now we can do all that stuff we used to do, but in a total of 298 lines of actually manageable code, including templates, and with hardly any insane regexes. Most of the credit goes to the python tornado library, which makes it really easy to write small, fast, secure web apps, even if you're super lazy.

Please let me know if anything explodes.

I'm CEO at Tailscale, where we make network problems disappear.
