Summary:

Technical details behind ipsedixit.net

ipsedixit.net is currently a mix of Textpattern (the stuff linked at the top of this page), ancient static pages I haven’t gotten round to doing anything about (most everything else, accessible from the home page), and some pages generated by Doxygen.

Do not blame Textpattern for the visual design, which is entirely my own fault. I mainly use Webkit -based browsers myself, and this site’s CSS includes some Webkit-only properties, in anticipation of wider CSS 3 support and better days ahead. Graphics toolkit mainly OmniGraffle and GraphicConverter, with any heavier-duty photo processing in the GIMP, Acorn, and Raw Developer. Text manipulation by BBEdit. Source code management ably assisted by Cornerstone and SourceTree. FTP via Transmit and/or Yummy FTP. MySQL management through Sequel Pro. Some of the code formatting by SyntaxHighlighter.

Developed locally on Mac OS X, usually while listening to WCPE. Live site hosted by Dreamhost (not an affilate link).
