Hello world!

Being very late to this party, I nevertheless thought it would be fun to start a blog. Since technology is what I spend most my time immersed in, technology is what we'll mostly be talking about. So, by way of introduction, here's what this site is running on (as of the time of writing!):
  • Hosting: Dreamhost.com
  • Web server: Apache
  • Database server: MySQL v4
  • Blogging software: WordPress
  • Custom functionality: Rails
Props to dreamhost.com. In setting up a friend's account and dealing with the hassle of moving domains & registrations around, as well as installing & configuring this blog and another one (HearingBooks.com), I've found their support to fast and reliable, and the functionality they've written to painlessly set up MySQL databases and software packages (such as WordPress, Gallery and MediaWiki) is excellent. Plus, they support Rails. What more could you ask for? :-)
