Is this thing on?

Since my FSFE blog is suffering from syntax highlighting problems, I thought I'd give this blogger thing a try. I wonder if syntax highlighting works out of the box, or if I need to do anything to turn it on. Here goes..

So did it work? Yes it did, but not as I had expected. Instead of blogger making a syntax highlighting engine available at the click of a button, I had to embed a Github gist with the code snippet.

Upside: It looks great and the solution of showing a gist has the added benefit of the code being updated in the blog post if/when the gist is updated.

Downside: Usage is a bit bothersome.

So will I move to blogger, and drop my FSFE blog? I just might. Or maybe I'll use both, but for different things. Decisions decisions..
