I said it was coming. Blog post about how I built a janky static site generator tied into to my phone so that I can write notes that get uploaded and indexed with ease

1) Putting ~ in a time field picks a random time. You can also use it as a range 1~30 picks a random time between 1 and 30. You can use it for all fields.

Scratch that, looks like ftp.openbsd.org doesn't actually have 6.7 yet so I'll just wait ☠️
