Flagrant System Error

I don't know what I did, but I sure screwed everything up.

Welcome to flagrantsystemerror.com. This is the inaugural post.

This website is intended to blog the more technical aspects of my projects. The hobbit-hole.org never seemed the right place for that kind of stuff. I intended to use hobbit-hole.org to blog other pursuits, but it mostly ended up about programming. This website will assume that role. I will mirror appropriate posts to artifice-lang.org.

I’m using git to maintain the website. Instructions to do so are straightforward with one caveat. I put the website repository in ~/flagrant.git and the site directory in ~/flagrant (which is where the post-receive hook checked the site out to). When I pushed, the site directory wasn’t updated and I received the error

remote: fatal: Could not jump back into original cwd: No such file or directory

Fortunately someone else had seen this error and posted the solution on Stack Overflow. Changing the checkout dir to flagrant.www resolved the error. As for the site’s design, I wouldn’t say it’s great, but it suits me. The following resources were useful:

This website is static. Nothing is used to generate the site dynamically; the site is just static html files. For now, these files are written by hand. I’m looking into using a site generation tool similar to Hyde or Petrify. If you have any suggestions, I’d like to hear them.
