  1. Fix a batch of broken external links

    Update links where the URL has changed slightly, but without a redirect.
    
    Or where theres a reasonable substitute link.
    committed Mar 8, 2017
  2. Make internal links use relative paths

    Using relative paths avoid duplication and prevents the links being
    treated as external by `htmlproofer`, which excludes them from tests.
    
    Sidesteps the missing PDF, which needs recovering from git history
    and moving to a static assets folder (`/static/misc/tube_tags.pdf`)

  3. Use ruby-version that is auto-available on Travis

    Speeds up builds, and there is nothing about this project that
    actually needs `2.3.x`.

  2. Fix #39: Add Travis config

    Run minimum viable test: does the static build work?
    
    Exclude vendor:
    - jekyll/jekyll#2938
    committed Mar 7, 2017
  3. Fix #38: Use system font, instead of web font

    Although the web font adds some personality to the design, it doesn't
    justify the 30k of blocking CSS. Especially when the site is ~15k without
     web fonts, and ~5k ignoring analytics.
    
    - Tweak font styling, colour, and size for the new font stack.

  4. Fix David's current job title

    Granted, this is only likely to be applicable for a limited time, due to
    commit 76aace9, but hey -- why not?

  1. Clean up blog posts after html to markdown conversion

    - Remove html entities
    - Fix use of cite for block quotes
    - Fix misc typos
    - Keep using cite, as there isn't a mardown equiv
    - Keep using dl/dt/dd, although it's supported in kramdown/gh markdown,
      it's not standard. Keep using the regular tags
    - Improve some post excertps

  2. Convert html blog posts extensiont to markdown

    The contents of the files were changed in the previous commit, but
    git wouldn't recognise a rename in the same commit.
    committed Feb 22, 2017
  3. Convert all HTML format blogs posts to markdown

    Using the `reverse_markdown` gem, setting the `github_flavored` option.

  1. Update last.fm tagcloud post, fix 404s, deprecate

    Internal links to `code/lastfm-tagcloud` were 404ing as that code project
    went away a long time ago. Remove links to if from the post and deprecate
    the project itself.
    
    The API powering it went away in the last 10 years and the PHP code
    is a bit of a state.

  1. Load app CSS before web fonts

    committed Feb 18, 2017
  2. Improve responsive rendering

    Add meta tag to trigger better responsive rendering. Without media
    query tweaks the linear/text content renders well.

  3. Stop using justified text in body copy

    Justified text is harder to read and less accessible:

  5. Update GA tracking to be HTTPS always

    GA calls nowautomatically redirect from HTTP to HTTPS, so using protocol
    relative URL results in delay due to the redirect.
    committed Feb 18, 2017
  6. Drop unused google web font family

    This wasn't having a big perf impact, as the actual font file isn't
    fetched unless the font is used somewhere in the CSS, but is a small
    increase in the initial fonts CSS load, and not needed.
