I wanted to start a blog. I did not want to use a formal engine (too much work) or a dead simple static file system (too lame). Then I found http://pages.github.com/. It was simple, with functionality: for post in site.posts

I, incorrectly, created my repo as mattscilipoti instead of mattscilipoti.github.com. After staring at "Page does not exist!" for a few hours, I put in a support request. A short wait and I had my answer:
"I don't think Pages setup fires on a repo rename, only the initial create. Delete your repo, recreate it, and re-push and you should get a PM that the page has built."
Edit. Delete. Create. git push. Wait a few minutes. tada. What you see.
