    Project mention: Dear Fellow Saxophonists: I've created a page dedicated SOLELY to compiling information about the ALTO saxophone. It currently consists of 5 questions and answers, but it will expand to thousands of questions and answers over the next few months/years. | reddit.com/r/saxophone | 2021-05-13

    That's a great question. Right now the answer is "no" main due to a lack of time on my part. When I study, I use flashcards which present information to me randomly, so I use the same model for the web page. The Content Management System that I use for my website is very simple: it's called Publii: https://getpublii.com/ It produces very clean html web pages, but it is VERY light on features. I picked it because it is extremely fast and extremely easy to use. My goal is to not waste too much time: just get the information out on the Internet compiled on one page. People can them use the info build their own flashcards in a program like Anki: https://apps.ankiweb.net/

    Project mention: Refrapt - A Python Alternative to apt-mirror | reddit.com/r/Ubuntu | 2021-04-20

    I tried aptly as an alternative, but it's just not designed for my use case. Dealing with creating 1 mirror per component is a nightmare, and then creating a snapshot, and then publishing it, and then repeating this on a short cycle to keep up to date. I'm also aware of debmirror, which I haven't actually tried, but where's the fun in using someone else's program when you can write your own eh?
