Aaaaand new site is up! Also, news on 1.1

Hey Hackety Hackers!

The new site has launched! Check it out, tell me what you think:
http://hackety-hack.com Thanks to all of you who helped with the
transition, you guys are awesome. <3 <3 <3

As for the 1.1 release: I'm bumping it back a week. There's a few
reasons, but largely it comes down to this: there have been some last
minute bugs exposed that I consider showstoppers, namely, that the new
Markdown lessons doesn't work well on OSX, and that there are some
issues with hitting the API in a development context. Most
importantly, dealing with fresh bugs from deploying TWO new codebases
at once is a bit too much for me to handle.

So, 1.1 will be released next week. Thanks again for all your help!

-Steve

Oh no! Is there anything I can do to help with the Markdown lesson stuff?

Hey Dan!

Yes. So, the big issue is that you can't use Redcarpet, because it's a
c extension gem. Unless we build it into Shoes (which is something I'm
personally okay with, but is a different solution) we can't use it in
Hackety. I didn't realize this when we had our original conversation.
:/

I yanked it back out and put it on a branch, here:
https://github.com/hacketyhack/hacketyhack/branches/markdown-lessons

I'm not sure which would be easier. Make a new thread, and let's talk
about it. :)
