Colophon is a technology-centric website with occasional forays into aspects of my life outside of computers. I’ve been publishing at this domain since February 1996, and elsewhere since 1994.


The site is statically generated using Jekyll. Content is composed for the most part in Neovim. Hosting services are provided by Pair.

The pages are all HTML 5, and the style was originally based on the Minimal theme by Steve Smith. The page and post footers, and the pagination style are based on the Kasper theme, which is in turn influenced by the Ghost blogging platform. Font Awesome is used to produce the footer icons. Site statistics are collected by Mint.


My current computer is a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) named Rosindust. I also continue to use my previous computer, a mid-2009 15-inch MacBook Pro called BlackPerl. Both computers are running OS X Yosemite. I also make daily use of an iPhone 5, an iPad Mini, and an iPad Air.


The Google font Lato in various weights is used throughout the site.


(Japanese: 残心) Zanshin is a term used in the Japanese martial arts. It refers to a state of awareness – of relaxed alertness. The literal translation of zanshin is “remaining mind”.
