About the website

This website has been on the web since 2003. It started out as a Open source CD shop that sent people F/OSS software like GNU/Linux, OpenOffice etc., when the cost of downloading bytes over dial-up modems was expensive in India.

Now it is my “online presense” with blog, notebooks, talks etc. Archive of stuff going back to 2004 is here.

If you are curious on how this site is built, see the colophon page.

The papers/articles referenced in this website are available in the nbrefs section. Command used to generate the HTML from nbrefs.bib file: #

cat content/bib/Makefile
        bibtex2html  -o nbrefs -css https://www.btbytes.com/css/semantic.css \
        --title References \
        --header "<nav><p><a href="/">Home (www.btbytes.com)</a>, <a href="nbrefs_bib.html">View .bib file</a>, <a href="nbrefs.bib">Download .bib file</a>.</p></nav>" \
        --footer "<footer><p>Generated on <code>$(shell date)</code></p></footer>" \

bibtex2html used above is BibTeX to HTML converter
