You know that thing I said this update would be about?

It's not! I fooled you! It's all a trick!

“The next update will be me announcing that the Programming Guide is done! Really!” – the me of one month ago.

I was a fool. Oh, what a fool I was. Not content with simply making a cool website that works, I decided to play with a new toy, using the Static Site Generator 11ty to turn the announcements page from a simple page to a whole darn blog-type-thing! All those IDs I added to allow jumping to different points on the page? Gone! For naught! One month! It all lasted one month!

But hey, I don’t see that as a bad thing. You see, now I have more of a space to ramble, or rather to blather as I’ve decided to categorize it. It’s a not-so-cheeky reference to i-Mockery’s Blabber Blog. It’s something of a work-in-progress as I’m still sorting out things like automatically adding images and the like, and the new XML RSS feed is a little messed up right now, but who knows what the future holds?

Anyway, if you want to see the tutorial I used to get 11ty up-and-running, click here! It’s really simple to figure out and I’ve had some fun tweaking it to my liking. Who knows, maybe one day this whole site will be powered by 11ty?! I doubt it, because that’s a lot of work to be done, but like they say in Brooklyn, never say never.

This may be the last update of the year, in which case I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. EMN Christmas this year has been amazing ever since we added a bunch of movies that are full of snow and good cheer. I really should get to updating that particular page some day. Next year, maybe the programming guides really will be finished. Until then, here’s to peace and love. Bye!
