WordPress: Thanks!

I needed a blog, and I needed it fast. I wanted something written in Ruby or maybe Python, but I’d heard enough good things about WordPress that I gave it a try.

Wow! This is nice work! I’ll live with it being written in PHP. ;-) It was easy to get running on my virtual Linux server, once I figured out how to add a MySQL user for WordPress. The default stylesheet stinks big-time, but the WordPress Wiki pointed me to the Style Competition, where I found the Rubric style was closest to my taste. I tweaked it a bit and here we are.
