Hi, Dale, do you have any links, nicely demonstrating the features you
described above?
For me, as an utterly lazy guy, who also doesn't loves writing much,
the simpler the better..
that's why i thought about just setting up a blog and posting notes
there, which is just few minutes..
Throwing git into the cycle would extend this time.. and as result, a
willingness to post about updates.. :)
