New Blog

08 April 2012

Welcome to my new blog! I have finally got round to finishing it off. I have had it half finished for around 6 months and today I took the plunge, tidied it up and put it on the interwebs.

My old blog Purple haze used Wordpress. This one is written myself using Ruby with Sinatra. The reason I decided to roll yet another blog was because: - I wanted to learn some Ruby - I felt very discouraged to customise my old blog because I really cant stand PHP

The implementation of this blog is perhaps a little weird. Rather than using a database I am using the filesystem. I write my posts using my favourite markdown editor; IA Writer and Ruby just serves up the HTML generated by markdown.

I have quite a lot of posts in my backlog. I haven't posted on my old blog for over a year. In that year I have been exposed to a number of cool technologies and techniques which I will love to write about.

Stay tuned :)
