The Core Dump

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures

[By Nic Lindh on Monday, 27 February 2006]

First post

The Core Dump is now powered by WordPress, after a Typo upgrade went spectacularly wrong. Although that was more of an impetus for change—I’d been eyeing WordPress for a while, and decided that rather than roll back to an earlier rev of Typo, why not just go ahead and test the waters a bit?

In a way it’s kind of nice to start over with a clean slate, and to have an opportunity to rework the site and de-cruftify things a bit.

So far the article feed URL has been brought over, so if you’re reading through an aggregator, things should Just Work. The comments feed, on the other hand, is in the wind, so if you care about that, you need to resubscribe.

Lots to do to bring old posts over and set up all the niggling little details.
