mobileteashop Rebuilt in Jekyll

Based on my experience at work, I decided to rebuild this site in Jekyll.

Despite there being many blog-ish and gallery-ish types of platforms out there, I think that a static site generation tool works well for me. I have a strong preference to work both locally and directly with markup (or Markdown) where possible, and a Git + Jekyll setup pretty much fits the bill.

The site also got a complete visual overhaul, which has been long overdue since 2007 :)

I’m going to use this revamp as a kick-in-the-pants to start writing more - both new content and wrangling out some readable posts from the rough notes I’ve kept over the years.
