So I think it's about time I started blogging again

Yeah, I know.

It's been almost a year since I last used my blog - mainly for the usual excuses (too much work, real life gets in the way) but also because quite simply I didn't have the right frame of mind to form coherent sentances that I felt were worth publishing. In the past few weeks (months?) I haven't been around on irc much, haven't had much time for skimming the google group and cake book submissions - which has also left me with a problem: I don't have a soapbox.

So I finally got around to rewriting the code for my blog (contraversial though this may be: I don't think any self respecting web developer should use anything except their own code for their own blog), simple and with-flaws though it is, to be able to write about and showcase some of the more interesting bits of code that have popped up over the past few months. One of the more interesting aspects that I'm still toying with is a laptop to server sync - to allow writing/moderating/tweaking while offline/travelling - something that I always wanted to be able to do even before google gears came on the scene. If you're eager you can find the code for this blog, along with most of the plugins it makes use of in the Mi project.

So... "I'm back", and with itchy fingers to state my opinions about this, that and the other.
