has been using a lot of different software over the years (handwritten HTML files, home brewed CMS and various other CMS’es).

Since I started this blog (again) I’ve been running Nanoblogger, a nice, small bash based blogging framework. But even if it has been working okay it is very limited in function (hence nano I guess). So I decided to switch to a new blog engine.

The choice is: WordPress. Why? Because it has a large user base, easy to extend (more than 5000 plugins) and easy to make look like you want (lots and lots of themes). The downside is that it is PHP based and requires MySQL which might be a problem for my underpowered server.

Anyway, I’ve done a log of testing before going live with the new software. All article links should still work. Old comments have been imported to the new system.
