So, in keeping with my policy of messing with things that are working fine,

we’re now running the site using Blosxom.

Why? Well because its design philosophy matches the tool and its purpose. A simple, filesystem-based blogging

tool in one small perl script easily portable to any operating system. I love Movable Type,

but it was overkill in many cases, and installing it was way too much work. And I typically like that sort of thing.

Here’s a snippet from Rael’s site…

“If Blosxom takes more than 15 or so minutes to install, I must be doing something wrong or explaining something badly. Please let me know [rael@oreilly.com] how I can make this easier and I’ll do my best to help”

That’s what I’m talkin bout.
