Switched homepage engine

My old homepage was a mixture of handmade php pages and the blog was powered by blogger

However I wanted to mix my old KDE blog, with this one, and provide feeds to planet-like aggregators based on categories. Yes, I don’t like the idea of my weekend photos to appear in a tech-aggregator. And blogger does not yet support categories, and every day it seems to suck more.

After playing with wordpress and the markdown plugin, it became confortable enough to switch. And with the help of a simple script I found in the net I was able to convert most pages to the simplistic markdown. I was sick of using html to write posts. Not because WYSIWYG editor are not good, but I want to store my posts in a more human readable format.

Let’s see how it goes.
