Here we go again: WordPress 2.5

9 April 2008

Okay, here we go then. I’ve managed to drop Mephisto after only a few weeks of service.

As a Rails developer, I liked the idea of running my own blog on something Rails. However, Mephisto was a big disappointment. Especially compared to WordPress 2.5. Mephisto has been on life support for quite a while now, and it’s just too complex to be easy to hack. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love hacking Ruby, but not too much on my blog. It “should just work”.

The reason I skipped to Mephisto in the first place was that my Wordpress 2.3 blog was very slow. I managed to track down the problem to the Twitter plugin, which was next to useless anyway.

Now, with all the new funky stuff in 2.5, I switched back. I haven’t managed to write anything substantial in the past weeks anyway, so it wasn’t a problem to loose one post.

There are many reasons for my not posting substantial stuff lately. One of them being my new hobby: photography (link). Check out my Flickr page and let me know what you think of my more recent photos.

So long for now. Expect more from me soon.
