For many years, this blog (such as it is) ran on Blosxom, which was ok but not great. Back in January of this year, I figured I would give something new a try. I rebooted the site using Wordpress. I imagined posting from Editorial on my iPad, but that never really happened.

A recent episode of the Accidental Tech Podcast had me thinking about my own site more, and figured another change was in order.

So, Wordpress is dead, long live Octopress! It seemed to be the most common choice amongst other Linode users in a Twitter poll. It also statically generates the site and can be done from anywhere and then pushed to my server, which is nice.

As a bonus, this lets me purge MySQL off my server. Good riddance.
