Old and new

For the past 2 years, we have been using our old blogging system (Joomla) to post about our work related stuff - computer science for me, structural engineering Mana. Sometimes we also added posts about various thoughts, travel experience, photography, recipes, etc. We had a photo gallery embedded as a Joomla plugin, it was the RSGallery and it required a lot of php-hacking to make it look at least a bit usable.

Anyway, it was too time-consuming to deal with all that, so after it got hacked again (various spambots, crawlers etc. infecting the php code), we (mostly me, of course ;-) ) decided to move our content to various web service providers - namely Blogger for the website and Zenfolio for pictures. We will give it a try and see how well it works.

The old website was also hosting some mediawiki instances for various projects I participated in. The ones that are still alive were moved to the Google Apps platform.


  1. s/how good it works/how well it works/

  2. thx, fixed ;-) I am doing this in a rush, you know how it is.. you start moving your entire website only when you should be doing something entirely different..
