So it has been almost a year since I last posted.

The main reason is because my previous blog code (Octopress) was in a broken state and after spending about an hour or two trying to fix it, I gave up.

Basically the ruby gem versions and ruby runtime version that Octopress required, were in conflict with the versions I had installed on my system. I tried using RVM, but that proved to be a huge pain in the ass.

I always liked the clean look of Octopress and that it generated static HTML files.

I disliked having to write my posts in markdown and felt it was too clumsy to write new posts and modify the blogs features/pages.

So I decided to code my own.

I did it with node.js and it took me about a day. I replicated the look and feel of the Octopress theme and kept the same URL format (so Disqus comments would carry over and RSS feeds wouldn't break).

All the code underneath this blog is open source and available here:

Note: I didn't really make the code for others to use, so I don't really have any instructions on how to use it. I don't expect anyone to actually use it anyways :)

Now that I have a functioning blog again, I have 2 or 3 blog posts I've been wanting to posts for a few months. Those will be coming soon :)
