Reading up about static blog software

Excited to read about this.  There's a whole new world of static, database free blogs.  This would be the answer for using Opera Unite or Github as free blog providers, or my Fastmail system (which I already use for email and for photo albums).  Basically, it's possible simply to write text files in any editor, and transform these into instant blog posts.

Here are some links I discovered so far:
