I finally completed (more or less) my website transfer to WordPress. Back in March I was trying to hack WordPress into a complete content management system. Since then I became less ambitious, and have simply bolted the blog together with some statis pages in a seamless manner.

I'm not interested in blogging as it is usually defined, but look forward to employing WordPress for making regular updates about my work and hobbies, and for publication of a number of essays I have in mind.
