Just another tech blog – ranting since 2006

Conversion to Octopress complete

Well, I was up until the wee hours of the night last night, but I finally converted my blog to Octopress and have it hosted on AWS S3. I must say, I really like Octopress and am becoming a big fan of generated static websites (such as Github pages), where anything complicated is handled by JavaScript. The only unfortunate thing is that I couldn’t bring the comments over from Wordpress and put them into Disqus.

Generating the site and pushing it to S3 is as easy as:

rake generate
cd public
s3cmd sync . s3://

The source in case you are interested is on Github at:

Thanks to Jeff Barr for introducting me to Octopress on his AWS Road Trip.

Looking forward to getting back into this – it has been too long without a good rant. :)
