New Blog

Welcome to my new blog!

Despite there being such a wide variety of CMS choices on PHP, I've decided to finally abandon it for my blog. Goodbye Concrete5, it was nice knowing you.

A friend of mine told me about Ghost so now I'm giving this a try. I love the simplicity of using Markdown as the input format. This makes it ideal for code blogs.

This site is running on the official Ghost Docker image running within CoreOS, which is in turn running on Citrix XenServer, which is running on a Hetzner dedicated server. This means I will always have the latest version of Ghost, due to the way that Docker images are configured to keep data separate from the application. More to come on how this works... :-)
