#![desc = "Random thoughts of a software engineer"]


Welcome to my first post in my new Blog.

Finally I managed to get my new Blog online. I'm looking forward to do some posts here from time to time, covering problems or ideas I encounter during my projects (which most probably will be related to Ruby on Rails development or general Linux administration stuff).

As a Ruby on Rails developer myself, I'd rather prefer to run a Blog software using Ruby on Rails -- but however, I wasn't satisfied with the available Blogs based on RoR. Typo is told to be problematic and many people seem to switch to Mephisto. Mephisto however has currently no support for trackbacks and pingbacks. So for now I'll have to stick to WordPress (which actually forced me to install PHP to my server again, eek).
