Thought I'd share this based on a recent comment by TheFunk about wanting to get a personal blog site set up while avoiding WordPress and Drupal:
I use Jekyll to maintain my personal site (http://www.glitchwrks.com/) and would recommend it for anyone who finds themselves thinking editing straight HTML templates might be easier to deal with than a CMS. You write pages/posts/whatever in a markup language (I use Markdown, which follows a syntax similar to how one writes plaintext e-mail), run it through the Jekyll processor, and get well-formatted static HTML on the other side. That and a small rsync script, and you can update your site with nothing other than a text editor, ssh/rsync client, and an Internet connection.
If you've written a Markdown README for github, et c., this is essentially what they're using to generate the HTML readme from it.
