@eli I tried to do just this myself a couple of ears ago but hit some roadblocks and couldn’t figure out how to get back on track. Wound up abandoning the whole project but I wish I could get it properly going again. Are (many) people using GitHub as a host for micro blogging? So many questions. Hope that wasn’t a stupid one, heh.
@eli @ronguest I can’t remember exactly what it was now - I’ll have to haul it all out and have another look sometime. Good to know there are so many people here to ask if I get stuck! Thanks Ron, I spotted a blog post mentioning that too. Now they microblogging is more of a thing hopefully there is more info around.
