+ Short update on why this site looks different and what changed under
+ the hood and where the rest of the content went.
+
+New Blog
+========
+
+I really wanted to stop giving status updates like this on my blog as
+irrelevant information is much better suited for twitter, but let this be
+the last exception. I used to use my own blog software “Zine” on this
+website but after a while I had to recognice that I hate traditional
+weblog software. When I started blogging a few years ago I used wordpress
+like everybody else did. I also used subversion (if at all) and generally
+the world was a different place.
+
+I always thought it would be a huge plus to be able to edit your blog
+posts online from any computer. However I no longer have the urge to
+update my blog from a random location, instead I want to use this place to
+share things I learned, little stories, useful experiences and other
+things. And all that requires careful proof reading and because it takes
+time, there is no reason why I shouldn't be able to do that on my personal
+notebook and my favourite text editor.
+
+For random outburts I now have Twitter, and that fulfills it's role
+perfectly.
+
+The other new thing on this website is, that it's no longer featuring user
+comments. There are a couple of reasons for that. First of all 98% of
+all comments submitted on my old blog were spam. Secondly however I don't
+really want user feedback to show up on my website. Not because I am
+afraid of user feedback, but because I think these discussions should go
+to dedicated channels such as mailinglists, reddit and other websites.
+
+Lastly that way I don't waste valuable CPU time on our already overloaded
+pocoo box and can move the blog around as necessary.
+
+In case you are interested in the script that generates this website, head
+over to `it's github page <http://github.com/mitsuhiko/rstblog>`_.
+
+But where did the existing content go? I am currently in the process of
+sorting out useful blog posts and useless stuff I posted here. The former
+will come back, nicely formatted and updated as necessary, the rest will
+move to a different URL with the original site design and comments
+preserved.

+Projects
+========
+
+Over the last couple of years I worked on a number of open source
+projects. Most of them were Python, a couple of others however were also
+C, PHP or other languages mixed in.
+
+Projects I've founded are marked with stars (‘*’), others are project I
+joined. Projects where I helped out for a short period of time are marked
+with a dagger (‘†’).
