now powered by pMachine

It is taking some time but is gradually evolving into a multi-weblog site. I have recently changed from Greymatter to pMachine and I have enjoyed the challenge of the change. Greymatter is a great piece of software but with most development now finished on it I felt that it was time to upgrade to a php and mySQL driven site.

pMachine certainly lived up to its reputation for an easy install. Any problems that I had were mainly because of my own inattention. I also had a change of server to facilitate my new requirements.

Last night I successfully installed “Gallery v1.3.2” a php driven image gallery. This was a challenge to install, along with netPBM for image manipulation. Not sure what time I finished and crawled off to bed, but the work was very much worth it. This is a slick piece of merchandise that is open source and well deserving of much praise.
