About This Website

I started looking at Django and things and decided I really ought to know more about how it all actually works, so this website is powered (if that's not too strong a word) by some templates and custom code in Python and Javascript.

The stories begin life as emails circulated to a few friends, then get converted to HTML. The pages are entirely static, so they're small and fast to load :-)

(Ok, there's some Javascript, but it's very simple unless you get to the point of wanting to subscribe or buy something, in which case we'll have to drag in all the PayPal API stuff.)
