I was recently questioned by Hannah Suppiah about writing code to calculate fibonacci numbers and it brought my uni days flooding back. As an illustrative tool and a quick bit of nostalgia, I wrote this simple JQuery example of the fibonacci tree.

Although Git support is in heavy development, for those who cannot wait, check out the nbgit plugin which provides a few Git features to keep you happy until official support arrives.

Since I last posted on this I have read up a bit more about the “hacks” that I have been getting. I have also seen some requests from bots looking to use my server as a free proxy to other sites.
