This blog was started in the early 2000s and currently has some posts going back to around 2003. It has lived in various places, under SPIP, Wordpress (.com and .org), under Blazeblogger and as home-grown html. Currently I'm using a static blogging system in emacs org-mode, developed by Bastian Bechthold. The project can be found here. I love the simplicity of this system, mainly because it leaves source files in plain text and is easy to manage. Older posts can be found on Wordpress.
