Gitit is a wiki program written in Haskell. It uses Happstack for the web server and pandoc for markup processing. Pages and uploaded files are stored in a git, darcs, or mercurial repository and may be modified either by using the VCS’s command-line tools or through the wiki’s web interface.
What is phog? A static-site generator along the lines of Jekyll, Volt, nanoc etc. but for the purpose of generating image & video galleries and photo blogs. It’s not a general purpose blogging engine — galleries are the main focus.

If you’re not sure what Alpha and App.net are, and wonder whether you should bother with an account:
Alpha is a Twitter-ish thing built on App.net that feels a wee bit like Twitter did before it hit the mainstream, but after the influx of new users who signed up in 2007, post-SXSW — generally quite geeky, relatively quiet, and with an emphasis on conversation over quickfire one-to-many quippery. It’s roomier, too, with posts limited to 256 characters.
App.net proper is a platform for, well, all sorts of social-type things2—messaging and chat, file storage, sharing & synchronisation, location check-ins, &c..
This generalist approach allows developers to build, say, an App.net-backed photo-sharing app, or a quick ‘n’ easy file-sharing application. So, if you’re not interested in Alpha, an App.net account might still come in handy.
Whatever you end up using App.net for, the following line from their ‘core values’ applies:
> App.net members always have full control of their data and the fundamental right to easily back-up, export, and delete ALL of their data, whenever they want.
In short, Alpha is a nice place to hang out and talk to folk; App.net is a platform with a lot of potential, and a laudable emphasis on treating its users well.
The only thing missing is people — particularly people who aren’t developers, technology journalists or semi-professional webloggers! — a problem you can help fix with a quick click:
This means you can follow up to 40 accounts, and have 500 MB of file storage to play with. If you upgrade to a paid account (which costs $36 a year) you get 10 GB of storage and can follow as many accounts as you like. ↩

Helium is a tool for discovering unused CSS across many pages on a web site.
Helium accepts a list of URLs for different sections of a site then loads and parses each page to build up a list of all stylesheets. It then visits each page in the URL list and checks if the selectors found in the stylesheets are used on the pages. Finally, it generates a report that details each stylesheet and the selectors that were not found to be used on any of the given pages.
