Welcome to the home of Joseph Zizys on the web.
I wanted a place where I could maintain a website that was not confined to being a simple blog, somewhere where I was in control, something with flexibility. So here we are.
"Here" in this instance is Github Pages. Nice. I use gandi.net for domain name registration and dns services, I modify the dns zone there to include
126.96.36.199 and github looks in my
CNAME file for the custom domain info.
I am editing the gh-pages repo directly on my machine with Sublime Text and hoping that when I save them and sync with git that they all bleedin' come together. We will see. It is nice to muck around with tech again. OK.
So to grab my pages I fire up the terminal and use the code below:
$ cd your_repo_root/repo_name $ git fetch origin $ git checkout gh-pages
And after I edit and save something in the text editor I use:
$ cd your_repo_root/repo_name $ git add . $ git commit m 'my comments on the change commited' $ git push origin source
Then i wait a sec, reload the page in the Google Chrome browser and I am done.
I am a father of two from Melbourne Australia. I write. I follow the Buddha's path. I am an anarchist. I am a feminist. I am polyamorous. I like art. I like music. I like people. I like parties. I like psychedelics. I have more bits and pieces and memberships and what not on the web than I can remember, later I will put up links to the essentials.
What can I do here?
You can look around. I have some poetry up, some fragments of prose, some info about using bash, git, html and so on. I have some writing about Buddhism too. There is a blog somwhere.
In 2007, Chris Wanstrath (@defunkt), PJ Hyett (@pjhyett), and Tom Preston-Werner (@mojombo) founded GitHub. What nice folks. I also use an Apple Macbook Air with the xcode command line tools and Homebrew and git to make my developing all nice and nixie while still enjoying the aluminium and lightness.
Want to talk to me? Email me at joseph dot zizys at gmail dot com, if you don't like dots then josephzizys dot gmail dot com will also work, but you only save one dot, so, I dunno… maybe you love dots, in which case j dot ose dot phzi dot zys dot gmail dot com will be fine as well. basically the only two non negotiable dots are after the ones either side of the word gmail.. Having trouble with Pages? Check out the sketchy but bearable documentation at http://help.github.com/pages or contact email@example.com and they’ll help you sort it out.
