Hobix Dead?

Hello

Is Hobix dead? I do the magical Hobix.com incantation:

ruby -ropen-uri -e ‘eval(open(“http://go.hobix.com/”).read)’

…and get errors. I then race here:
http://osdir.com/ml/web.hobix.general/2006-09/msg00017.html
and see that I need the subversionversion. Off I go to Rubyforge,
where I see the version from 2004.
I swing by http://code.whytheluckystiff.net where I see I can click on
“source” under (dormant) Hobix
and download each source text file one by one to my computer (or not).

If I go to “wiki” I can click on “code” and see that Mental has
checked in some stuff a month ago.

Now on to here: http://code.whytheluckystiff.net/access/
…where I can log in with my Rubyforge account and then hit a bit of
a dead end, because the
welcome screen is this: http://code.whytheluckystiff.net/WELCOME,
which suggests I go back to
http://code.whytheluckystiff.net/access/

Is something else going to happen now or is it time to write my own
Hobix?

you can ‘svn co http://code.whytheluckystiff.net/svn/hobix/’. But it
is pretty much dead.

I had a Junebug wiki, which I used much like a blog. I put all sorts
of articles about
programming and sysadmin etc. there. Now that South Africa has daily
power outages though, I can’t run it reliably at home any more and have
been searching for an alternative. I have tried Blogger.com and
Wordpress,
but I cannot post syntax highlighted, properly formatted code on
those sites without a huge amount of hassle (ie. I interpret it with
Maruku
and paste the html in the box).

Is there any free online blogging service that can do Ruby syntax
highlighting??
If not, and I can get access to my own server in a non-banana country,
is there
a Ruby blogging engine that can syntax highlight code and preferably
accept posts
in Markdown?

Hobix looked promising.

Take a look at Webby

http://webby.rubyforge.org

It’s a not an online service, but it will handle Markdown and do
syntax highlighting. Webby generates HTML files that you can sync up
to your webserver.

Bruce WIlliams is using it for his site, http://www.codefluency.com.
It does pagination, ATOM / RSS feeds, markup, syntax highlighting, etc.
