I use an atypical date format, as you may have noticed from my blog posts. The standard American date layout is: mm-dd-yyyy. I find this exceedingly obnoxious, and I’m convinced that the big-endian approach I use (yyyy-mm-dd) is the only variety that makes sense. Yes, I also think you’re being silly, Europe.
My site used to be on the lazy-man's version of a web server, the kind where you put everything in a template and press "publish." I wasn't fond of how that looked, and the natural response was obviously to give myself more control over the whole thing. Now it's on a Raspberry Pi in my apartment, which is pretty neat.
