Ladies and germs, I am now on WordPress.
I tired of DasBlog‘s slow updates, poor features, and futziness. It got old.
This is a major change for a Microsoft fanboy like me. WordPress is totally non-Microsoft: runs on PHP, uses mySQL, and works best on Linux systems. Argh. Now I’ll have to figure out PHP. phpMyAdmin rocks. Linux still sucks, but since this is hosted, I don’t have to administer Linux directly.
I tried finding other reliable, mainstream, Microsoft-centric blog systems. The only realistic alternative is Community Server, and it’s way too complicated for a single blog.
We’ll see how this goes. I am still experimenting, so please be patient.
I was able to get most my old posts into this system. It’s way too much work to get the comments over here, so those will have to be lost.
I am not sold on this theme. Email me if you have any better ideas.
