Obviously things have happened to this site. Let me just mention the most important here — the rest you can figure out for yourselves.
First of all, there’s a new kid on the blog. Allow me to introduce Steffen (his profile will return 404 until he publishes something), whom many of you already know. I’ve been hoping to have him join this blog for a long time now, but my old blogging software wasn’t rigged for it. I’ve finally gotten over myself and installed a standard platform, which I’ll get into in a second, but first: Welcome to the blog Steffen, I hope you’ll like it here.
Now, this new standard platform I mentioned, is (as you may have guessed) WordPress. At first I was a bit hesitant to move to such a platform, but with the ability to easily write plugins, widgets, modify templates and stuff, there’s really no reason not to. Setting up WP was a breeze and the migration from my old system to the new was a matter of 2 really simple PHP scripts — one for converting the old entries and one for the comments. A million thumbs up to the WP developers for making something so accessible, simple and easy.
Apart from a new blogger and a new platform, other things have changed a bit around here. When migrating to WP, there were some decisions to be made. One of those were whether or not to move stuff like phpCF and DynDNSupdate to the new site and I ended up deciding that DynDNSupdate wasn’t worth moving, since I haven’t coded on it for years (and I don’t intend to ever again) and it didn’t appear to be all that popular anyways. So DynDNSupdate is gone. phpCF survived though, mainly because I still code on it every now and then (and I have some huge improvements planned) and because it actually has a future (where DynDNSupdate only had a past — not even a present).
Now, no migration of this sort is without problems and I’ve tried my best to make sure that no old links are broken and stuff, but should you encounter any problems, let me know.
