TODO: Pull subtitle into page object

This is a test. A what? A test.

This is a test. A what? A test!

This is just copying an org-mode file into MDX so that I can publish it on the site.

You see, a while ago I moved to [[https://orgmode.org/][org-mode]] from MDX and I love it. It's interesting in general, but the killer feature for me is that I can put snippets of code directly in the files and then run them and the output will show up in a results area.

Take this python snippet, for example:

code_start_default_section code_end_default_section
Results
Hello, Aasha
  Hello, Bader
  Hello, Hana

You can't tell from reading the post, but that output happened automatically in emacs (which is the text editor that supports org-mode)

The problem is the software I use to publish my site is setup for [[https://mdxjs.com/][MDX]] and there's not an org-mode parser. So, I have to write my own. That's going to take work and it's not work I'm willing to put cycles into right now.

So, I haven't be publishing. I've been writing some, but less because I can't publish.

** Do It Live

Instead of building the full publishing system, I'm going to go manual. I'm writing this in org-mode. When I'm done, I'll make a markdown version by hand and publish that.

It's more friction than I'd like, but it's way less than rebuilding the publishing engine.

And, now that I'm doing it, I'm finding it's not that big a deal. And, more importantly, it gets something out the door.

So, this is a test.

If you're seeing this. It worked.

Debugging Stuff

I'm moving stuff around right now. All this below is helping me figure out where to put stuff
