— H. P. Lovecraft, "The Whisperer in Darkness"

The blog requires an instance of postgreSQL. On the first run the blog will guide you through setting up the db connection properties and create the necessary tables for you. Then you will be presented with the setup wizard wich will allow you to configure the administrator and the blog title. Further configuration can be done on the profile page.
