Bookmarks for 4th August 2012

These are my saved Pinboard links for 4th August 2012:

  • Buttermilk Cornmeal Pancakes – Amateur Gourmet – I’d like you to meet my breakfast from last weekend, Buttermilk Cornmeal Pancakes. These pancakes, which come from Cheryl and Griffith Day’s “Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook” intrigued me because of the cornmeal in the title. I’m not normally a pancake person because of a texture issue–I find them too spongy, too mushy when you add the syrup–but cornmeal seemed to suggest these might be crisper than normal pancakes. And guess what? They totally were. Craig called them the best pancakes he’d ever had for that very reason.
  • Raspberry Pi Starters Guide | Device Gadget – The Raspberry Pi (RPi) has certainly captured the imagination of the computing world. The first batch sold out in around 3.14 seconds, and the subsequent batches are already earmarked for those who put their names on the list. However, what many buyers of the first RPis seem to have forgotten is that this is the first-generation development board. As Eben Upton has said over and over again, the goal of the first RPis is to get people busy creating and modifying, so that the coming generations of RPis are more suited for the average user. Still that hasn’t stopped people going all potty over the this miniature wonder.
  • Home · mojombo/jekyll Wiki – Jekyll is a simple, blog aware, static site generator. It takes a template directory (representing the raw form of a website), runs it through Textile or Markdown and Liquid converters, and spits out a complete, static website suitable for serving with Apache or your favorite web server. This is also the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host your project’s page or blog right here from GitHub.
  • Webby :: Webby – Webby is a fantastic little website management system. It would be called a content management system if it were a bigger kid. But, it’s just a runt with a special knack for transforming text. And that’s really all it does – manages the legwork of turning text into something else, an ASCII Alchemist if you will.

    Webby works by combining the contents of a page with a layout to produce HTML. The layout contains everything common to all the pages – HTML headers, navigation menu, footer, etc. – and the page contains just the information for that page. You can use your favorite markup language to write your pages; Webby supports quite a few.
