This site is a bunch of static HTML5 pages served by lighttpd and compiled from a Markdown source file with metadata annotations using a small Python script. Markup and stylesheets are hand-crafted. The font is you should see is Lato. The dynamic map displays use Leaflet and, because I couldn’t be bothered to write portable JavaScript without the assistance of library authors who know what they’re doing, JQuery. The map data is from one of the best free information projects on the planet, OpenStreetMap, as rendered by HikeBikeMap. The server receives updates from my Android phone by means of SGit—the ability to roll back should hopefully keep me from ruining the site while I don’t have access to a proper computer, i.e. one that runs Debian.

Those mentions are, of course, just the tip of the iceberg. Isn’t it amazing how much free software it takes to get a little site like this running? Thank you, folks, for your fantastic work.
