Hugo's Processing Model and URL Management

The Hugo static site generator takes some plain-text content, marries it to a bunch of HTML templates, and produces a set of complete, static HTML pages that can be served by any generic, stand-alone web server.

A Note On Piffles

A. C. Jones in his paper “A Note on the Theory of Boffles,” Proceedings of the National Society, 13, first defined a Biffle to be a non-definite Boffle and asked if every Biffle was reducible.
