I cloned this repository from teddziuba/teddziuab.github.com for the purpose of hosting Ted's old blog on the web somewhere, since he started over at http://teddziuba.com.

Getting this running in a subdirectory of my own webpage (i.e. http://www.widgetsandshit.com/teddziuba/) proved to be much more difficult that I imagined it would be. Whether or not jekyll has support for a custom site root URL or not (this page seems to indicate that it kind of does: https://github.com/mojombo/jekyll/issues/26), I couldn't get it working. Also most of the img tags weren't using any jekyll variables or anything for their URLs.

Long story short, I hacked it up with a bunch of perl one-liners, and then checked the resultant _site directory into git. I know, I know, if you are familiar with Jekyll you are probably laughing at me right now. But, since neither Ted nor anyone else is actually updating this content, I'm happy with how it worked out.

Warning: if you try to use the code highlighting in Jekyll (via the {% highlight ... } syntax) but you don't have pygmentize installed and on your path, jekyll will just swallow whatever's in the highlight tags without any warning.
