Welcome to the new site!

It’s been a while since I moved my main email to a new server and now the website is following suit. If you’re reading this than it means everything has gone over finally.

I switched over to WordPress from SPIP, because I wanted to buy into the app ecosystem that surrounds the former, in the hopes of getting more content on the site more easily. That means I’m still picking some nits here and there to get the template to do what I actually want. This may result in some minor design changes along the way.

Most of my effort has so far gone into beating WordPress to use schemaless (or protocol-relative) URLs, as the site should be transparently available over both http and https, without the broser complaining. So far I think I’ve been able to keep the upper hand, but the endeavor does by far not go as smoothly as I would have liked.

You’ll also see that I have switched to a very minimalistic theme. It’s not quite at the level of this no-design website, or Fefe’s Blog, because I’m a font geek and I love Bootstrap and my medieval numerals. I’ll try to keep the site as JavaScript free as possible.

You’ll also note that as opposed to your run-of-the-mill blog I haven’t enabled comments anywhere, because I (still) think a website is not a discussion forum. I do however enjoy getting suggestions, questions and fan-mail. So please do not hesitate to contact me.

Well, I think that’s it for the moment. I hope I can bring some interesting stuff to this website, if only for my personal future reference. I already have some ideas forming about things I would like to publically address. Stay tuned!
