  • Valid HTML tagged with microformats2. Valid CSS level 3, using a custom theme based on Simple CSS. Part of IndieWeb, the site sends and receives webmentions.
  • Logos and icons in SVG. “Dirt background” image by Michael Rose. The main typeface in use is Lora, with a touch of Iowan and System font. The code repository is on GitHub, deployed to Netlify. Latest deploy: 21 February 2024, at 13:10.
