Why Serendipity? And what's with the new site?

MetaBlog So what made me chose Serendipity? I wrote a pretty good Blogging engine a while back, DB Backed, Searchable, Secure and Safe comments, decent IFRAME-based front-page display, RSS Syndication.... Then my system crashed, and I lost that work, along with over 100 entries, lots of media and my will to rebuild the thing. In its place, I found the desire to rebuild all of in a unified way, with a CSS-Based theme, and so Serendipity (0.8) was chosen. Serendipity brings a collection of nice features, but more to the point, it brings a nice, unified look and feel which will eventually be carried over into the rest of the site. Look for improvements at the usual (glacial) pace :)

My blog is new & & & improved...

And to think, all this time I'd been using Old & Inferior... Actually, I was just using GhettoRiffic Homegrown. Turns out there is a nice bit of software - this software actually - called Serendipity (s9y). I'll be officially moving off LJ and on to this software in the relatively near future. Expect to see some entries popping up here in the near future.
