Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Phil Ringnalda switches to WordPress

Phil Ringnalda’s site is now powered by WordPress.

But, I’m never again going to see my weblog software returning Perl’s infuriatingly common response to any problem, ‘Internal Server Error. Check the error log for a message that’s no more help than this.’ And I don’t think you can imagine just how happy that makes me. Freedom 0? I’m down with that. A vibrant, independent and free community? Cool. But I just wanted out from under the bloody Perl. Thanks, Matt, and everyone else who has worked on WordPress, and on b2 before that, for giving me such an easy way out.

I’m sure I speak for all of us who have worked to make WordPress what it is today when I say, “you’re welcome, Phil!”

    It would be useful to be able to move comments to another post when a comment writer comments a different post by mistake… Maybe this does not happen very often, but I had such a case and you have to use phpmyadmin I think.

    However, WordPress is a great program!
