New home

In the process of moving all my posts here to a wiki on Github. Here’s the url:

I used the wp2md script to convert my posts from the WordPress XML export format to markdown. This was mostly successful, although like the conversions from Blogger to WordPress, WordPress to FlatPress and FlatPress back to WordPres that have been made over the 12 year history of this weblog, it was not perfect. Not by a long shot. The code snippets in many of the posts really got munged badly, so I’ll be concentrating on them first. What I’m also going to do is look into the most efficient way to build and index page and provide search against all 1,564 articles.

NOTE: I originally uploaded a mirror of this content on, but its lack of any kind of search facility made it less useful than it could be.
