00:02:37 <ralsina> chronodekar: not really
00:03:09 <chronodekar> @ralsina darn. I'll have to work around it then.
00:03:12 <chronodekar> Thanks
00:11:37 <ralsina> chronodekar: just out of curiosity ... why? :-)
00:13:11 <chronodekar> ralsina: instead of a traditional blog, what I want to do is write out a narrative. Thus, the first post I want folks to see should be my oldest post.
00:13:28 <ralsina> you could use a post-list
00:13:41 <chronodekar> what's that?
00:13:49 <ralsina> you can sort those in different ways, not sure if it has a chornological order
00:14:13 <chronodekar> is it the archive posting?
00:14:18 <ralsina> https://getnikola.com/handbook.html#post-list
00:14:55 <ralsina> looks like using the reverse flag should get you what you want
00:15:12 <ralsina> So, you create the posts as usual, and then create a page that shows the post-list in the order you want
00:15:52 <chronodekar> that might work ... is it possible to use the page with post-list as my index page?
00:16:43 <ralsina> sure
00:17:06 <ralsina> detailed instructions on how to do that here: https://getnikola.com/creating-a-site-not-a-blog-with-nikola.html
00:17:25 <ralsina> create a "site with a blog" as described there, then use the post-list in the main page
00:18:26 <chronodekar> ah, got it! didn't notice that before.
00:18:29 <chronodekar> thanks! :)
00:21:40 <ralsina> yw!

13:28:08 <ralsina> ChrisWarrick: on it
13:36:18 <ralsina> done
14:06:03 <chronodekar> Question about metadata - we include date information with the ".. date: " directive. 
14:06:21 <chronodekar> from some sources on the project site here is how it is filled in,
14:06:29 <chronodekar> ".. date: 2015-05-28 18:46:48 UTC" (without quotes)
14:06:46 <chronodekar> my question; is it incorrect to NOT include time information?
14:07:01 <chronodekar> i.e. to fill it like ".. date: 2017-02-10" instead?
14:07:16 <ChrisWarrick> chronodekar: that might work, but might also cause issues with timezones
14:07:42 <chronodekar> ChrisWarrick: so it's always better to fill that in? Alright. 
14:07:44 <chronodekar> Thanks!
14:12:54 <chronodekar> ChrisWarrick: in my conf.py, if I set TIMEZONE="UTC+05:00" , can I skip that part of the '.. date:' directive?
14:13:30 <ChrisWarrick> chronodekar: yes, but UTC+05:00 is not a correct value
14:14:45 <ChrisWarrick> chronodekar: the correct value is something like Europe/Warsaw, dependng on your location
14:14:52 <chronodekar> oh. would TIMEZONE="Canada/Eastern" work then?
14:15:11 <ChrisWarrick> Are you on Windows?
14:15:13 <chronodekar> (looking up from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones)
14:15:18 <chronodekar> am on Ubuntu
14:15:24 <ChrisWarrick> cat /etc/timeozne
14:15:27 <ChrisWarrick> cat /etc/timezone
14:15:55 <chronodekar> I got America/Toronto
14:16:02 <chronodekar> alright, I'll use that then?
14:16:05 <ChrisWarrick> yes
14:16:10 <chronodekar> TIMEZONE="America/Toronto"
14:16:12 <chronodekar> Thanks!
14:16:29 <ChrisWarrick> yw
15:09:35 <[Tritium]> US/Eastern would work
15:10:11 <[Tritium]> so would Canada/Eastern, its in olsan as an alias
17:00:28 <ChrisWarrick> using an exact continent/city zone is much nicer though
