New Website and Blog

I've recently switched to a new blogging system (Jekyll rather than Drupal), and I'm making use of GitHub's excellent GitHub Pages to host it. Have a look over at tvcutsem.github.io.

Drupal was a powerful blogging engine, but a bit too powerful for my taste. Also, I disliked having to maintain a database just to store some blog posts. And the near-monthly security updates are a drag. Jekyll, by contrast, renders your blog based on plain Markdown-formatted text-files. Store these in a Git repo and you have something much more flexible and transparent than a SQL database.

With this writing I'm decomissioning this blog. This will be the last post here. Please refer to my new blog for updates later than August 2015.
