Happy New Year and best wishes for 2015!
A new fresh year and wish you all the best for 2015, let it be a great year in which things only get better again for all.
As you can see also a new fresh website for my blog. I have moved over to WordPress as it suited my needs better and allowed me to simplify my setup (as I am hosting it myself). During the course of last year I ran into small problems and issues with my setup of the Pebble blogging software I used. I still think Pebble was a great platform when I started using it a long time ago. There have hardly been any updates to the platform, which did not really bother me from a functional perspective, but did make me wonder whether there are really no security issues with it (or that they were just not found & fixed as it has a very small usage footprint). Besides the anti-spam mechanisms it had turned out not to work so I ended up manually removing spam comments just too often. Last but not least it required too much system resources as it requires a Java Servlet container that I do not need for anything else (anymore).
Therefore I decided last year to migrate my own and a few other blogs I host to a single WordPress 4 Network Instance. Migration was not flawless and I am still in the process of migrating the articles from last year (doing that manually) so expect some more content to be added the coming days/weeks. The design is still quite basic, I will clean that up once I find the time for that.
Let 2015 be a very good and productive year!
