I’ve started to renew my website as you might have noticed. The old one was built on top of Couch CMS a long time ago so I decided to ditch it totally. Developing it further wouldn’t have been fun. I’m treating the development of this new site as more of a constant process. I’ll release a new version when ever I have a new feature, change or a fix ready.
