About the author
The site you are reading, nostodnayr.net, is written and produced by Ryan Dotson. It’s my name backwards. You can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The gorgeous typefaces used for this site are Heldane Display and Heldane Text, by Klim Type Foundry.
A selection of pangrams to illustrate:
- The five boxing wizards jump quickly.
- How vexingly quick daft zebras jump!
- Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.
I advise zooming in and admiring those fucking beautiful letterforms.
Tools I use
This site could not exist were it not for these invaluable tools:
- BBEdit for writing both entries and the code powering the site
- MarsEdit for publishing and editing entries
- Yojimbo for squirrelling away ideas and reference material
- Transmit for doing some heavy lifting between here and there
- iTerm 2 for server management
- 1Password for keeping all the keys sharp and in order
- Movable Type 4.3 for content management and publishing, improved slightly with some custom modifications, and with help from these plugins:
Respect for the reader
I serve only valid HTML 5, CSS and RSS because it’s open, fast and means it’s accessible to anyone.
A change log for the site is available for perusal should you find yourself not quite bored enough already.
