beg theme is one of the best and most clear themes for blog around.
However, doing side-to-side comparison with that similar theme I'm migrating from I can see a few points which might be done smoother to improve the theme. Could you please take a look?

Source code for tests:

### UI

[![Shinken UI](https://github.com/shinken-monitoring/mod-webui/raw/master/doc/animation.gif)](https://www.shinken-enterprise.com/en/product/)

[Shinken WebUI](https://github.com/shinken-monitoring/mod-webui/wiki) is proven itself to work well with thousands of hosts and tens of groups.

### Drawbacks

I found no visible drawbacks, based on the documentation. The only thing that concerns me is its rapid development in the past and [very slow pace of commits](https://github.com/naparuba/shinken/commits/master) in the present: around 40 commits this year; most are pull requests merged, so no new development is going on, and only community-written bugfixes are being included. It’s either too good to move on (which is never the case; even old-timers like vim and emacs get their code updated) or it’s another opensource project that not enough people care about — you should know such things before using such a complex thing as a monitoring system.

[Frédéric Mohier](https://github.com/mohierf) was very kind to give me an insight on reasons of current situation: more than one year ago, some of the main developers of Shinken left the project and made a fork named [Alignak](https://alignak-monitoring.github.io/), which is being activly developed and plan to deliver 1.0 release in December, 2016.

## [Sensu](https://sensuapp.org/)

Sensu is a monitoring framework (platform, as they call themselves) rather than complete monitoring system. Its key features include:

* Puppet \ Chef integration — define what to check and where to send messages in your configuration system
* Reusing existing technical solutions where possible, instead of inventing their own (Redis, RabbitMQ)

Sensu pulls events from queue and executes handlers on them; that’s it. Handlers can send messages, execute something on the server, or do something else you want.

And another example, which is notable because exactly same amount of information is present on the screen but it's arranged a little different - and I guess beg part could be improved a little:

(Octopress part is not ideal as well, that's just out of the scope of this issue - for example, space between <h1> and following text in it is way too big).

And last but most important: <strong> must produce bold, <em> must produce italic.
Here is what it produces now:

It looks like instead of italic we have bold, and instead of bold we have underscore. That's changing of very basic markdown conventions.

Thanks for your suggestion 👍
You can make PR.I'll waiting for that!
But I think you should do fork and make new theme 💯

I'm not sure github sent notifications to mentioned authors, so posting double there: theme highlight is out, this very theme is in it, additional info on paskal/terrty#1.
