Fully Baked Weblog Software

Sprinkle DonutBrent Simmons: “I think the new technique web developers — or weblog developers, at least — ought to learn is static rendering: writing files to disk rather than building from a database on every request.”

I’ll have to track the progress on this font. It’s what I wanted when I switched from Blogger to WordPress about a year ago. I wanted the ability to generate static files on disk. WordPress generates your weblog from database entries. Static is king!
