New Blog

Welcome to my new blog!

I’ve decided to move my blogging from WordPress to Octopress. Mostly because:

  • The WordPress editor is slow and generally annoying/unusable.
  • Using a custom domain isn’t free.
  • It’s impossible to alter built-in styles for free.
  • The navigation bar that WordPress insists on showing is annoying.
  • The WordPress comment system has completely broken threading.
  • I can’t use Sublime Text 2 to edit posts.

So, Octopress seemed like the obvious alternative (even though I don’t like Ruby one bit, but I guess I’ll live).
