Not actually *hostile* (just a bit irate.)

The Fork

Currently blog.hostilefork.com is a scrape and rewrite of content that was previously on hostilefork.com. Your patience is appreciated while the transition from WordPress is underway.


The project pages are getting new homes too. So go check out BlackHighlighter, Albumist, USCII, Thinker-Qt, Rebmu, Rubol, OpenZoom-Squared, and many more to be added as the pages here get put together better.


In addition to the master list below, you can browse the entries by tag. There is some preliminary support for navigating the entries with the left and right arrow keys, and all the comments from the old site have been imported into Disqus. I appreciate your feedback or suggestions, so do not hesitate to contact me!
