My old LiveJournal blog has served me well over the last four years, but I was getting tired of LJ. When I first started this blog, I mostly used it like any other whiny homesick new college graduate would. But nowadays, I use this less like a social networking tool and more like a way to organize my projects and post writeups of things I’m working on or things I find interesting. So the community aspect of LJ wasn’t really useful to me, and I wanted more control over the technical and stylistic aspects of the site. Most of all, I wanted proper permalink URLs 🙂
So, here it is. I installed WordPress, ran its LiveJournal importer, and wrote some Python scripts to automatically fix up a few things. I also tried to go through all of the old posts and tag/categorize them properly, and fix up any broken links. The theme is a slightly modified version of Green Park 2, with some small formatting tweaks and a little bit of custom artwork.
Love it? Hate it? Let me know!
