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.
