Finally I brought myself to get a proper domain and to resurrect my blog ‘xirdalium.’ Not that it was dead and gone, but definitely in an undead state. The reasons for that were manifold. The first category of reasons are technical problems with the server the original instance of ‘xirdalium’ called its home. Since several weeks more often than not you got an ‘internal server error’ message when navigating there. Reason enough to quit the server. Another technical problem was, that somehow I lost the battle against comment spam too often, finally gave up, and permanently disabled the comments by pulling the plugin. There are solutions for fighting comment spam for Blosxom, the software ‘xirdalium’ ran on, but then again I am not too much of a coder (not a coder at all, that is), the hassle was just too great. Don’t get me wrong, Blosxom is wonderful software, and I learned unbelievably much by using it, but I need something more comfortable, hence the switch to WordPress. Now I’ll customize the thing here till I get the look and feels of the first instance, and then I’ll see if I can import all ye ole content.
