About This Blog

This blog is powered by WordPress, in my opinion the best open-source blogging software available. I base that assessment on features, reliability and extensibility.

This blog is hosted by DreamHost, in my opinion the best *nix / Apache shared Web hosting available in the world. I base that assessment on cost, features and reliability.

I also use the CloudFlare content distribution network for optimization and intrusion detection. It makes a marked improvement in page performance over just a file-based cache system.
