Blog New Home

So I’ve decided to up and leave Google Blogger in favor of a self hosted WordPress site. Why? Well mainly just because I couldn’t find a theme that jived with me. I’m the first to admit I’m a developer not a designer. An engineer not an artist Jim! All and all though it’s been a fun little experiment. I’m hosting it on a little Centos VM upstairs.

Yes I run VMWare at home, what don’t you? I suppose that could actually make a good blog post going through my little home infrastructure, I’ll admit it’s more complex than need be. But it provides a nice test bed when needed and keeps me busier than it should at times.


The site setup for those interested:

  • Centos 6.3 –  AMP install
  • Virtual machine with 2 virtual procs, and 2GB of RAM
  • WP 3.5.1
