Don’t panic, fair visitors, the programs section will be back once I’ve worked out how to handle static content in The New Ruby Way. I didn’t realise the programs were still used, but I have already received one email asking whether I am going to reinstate them on the site.
In other news, I bought my very first shareware application to help with the site, Panic Software’s Transmit ftp client. They have a synchronise function which will mirror a local directory on the server; in other words, perfect for uploading articles as I can just leave Transmit to synchronise my publish folder, which contains a version of the site ready to publish. It’s even super easy to create an Automator script to do this so it’s just a single click away.
