Little bit of a backstory: I’ve always wondered how you guys (the community) have so many websites; apparently domains cost money. I noticed some of the websites (like @FManga 's Project ABE) have the GitHub thingy. Never thought you could host from GitHub, but I tried it out and I actually have a website now
Secondly: I think the first time you create the website, you have to go to Settings → Pages and click “visit website” (after having an index.html file) to sort of “activate” the website. Maybe the first reason exists just because I didn’t to that, and might be invalid.
Thirdly: It takes time to update, a few minutes at least, so I recommend making and testing it yourself (in your own editor and your own browser) then uploading to GitHub later.
I find it a bit weird though because it’s very unspecific: the genus capsicum includes both ‘bell’ peppers and chili peppers (and a lot of other species). In fact, technically ‘bell’ and chili peppers are actually the same species (capsicum annuum), but they’re not exactly interchangeable when it comes to cooking.
I’ll look into that. There’s likely a way, even if you have to add an explicit include into the config file.
That’s one of the reasons I’ll likely be sticking to HTML rather than making use of the Jekyll features. I can’t be bothered to install Jekyll (and it’s not officially supported for Windows anyway, so I’d have to jump through hoops to get it working).
By the way, your website is technically ill-formed because the first two lines aren’t proper HTML.
If it was meant to be a comment, comments in HTML are done with <!-- and -->, not #. Otherwise, just stick it in a p tag in the body.
There’s a few other things you’re missing that you’re technically supposed to have, but nothing that’s likely to upset a web browser.
The list given by Wikipedia seems to suggest it’s an Indian Ocean thing: India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Kiwiland, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

It’s quite a commonly taught language. They taught us Java in college.
I don’t know how that compares age-wise to what you call ‘highschool’, but either way I expect they teach it to younger people these days than when I was at school.
Java’s not quite in the ‘awful’ tier of languages, but it’s not the nicest either.
Very verbose, very ‘everything is an object’ (and not in a good way), and various limitations due to design choices (e.g. the way the JVM is designed, type erasure).
C# is basically the better Java, but its support for Mac and Linux is still unfortunately limited.
It’s at least a little bit nicer now than it was back when I learnt it. Back then it didn’t have lambda expressions/anonymous functions (whatever it chooses to call them), the Stream API, or type inference.
28 in a three months if you go by release year rather than design year.
Believe or not though, Python is actually the older language. It’ll be 32 in just under a fortnight.
It likely depends on the company.
One of the reasons Google’s really pushing Python (setting up all those ‘code camps’ and ‘learn to code’ campaigns) is because they use it a lot internally and want their pick of developers.
Java likely finds more use in the more stalwart, traditional software companies.
Also Android still uses Java quite a bit.
The JVM itself finds use beyond Java though. There’s also Scala, Kotlin, Groovy, and Clojure to factor in.
