A new foundation

Created by hww3. Last updated by hww3, 17 years ago. Version #4.

If you're a semi-regular visitor, you'll probably not notice the major change that occurred here last night. I replaced the SnipSnap software that I had been previously using to run this site with a new system that I wrote myself. The software is tentatively called FinBlog, and is written entirely in pike using a MVC (Model-View-Controller) framework I've been writing, appropriately enough called Fins.

It (FinBlog and Fins, as well) is still a work in progress, but it's got enough functionality now to replace http://snipsnap.org, which was causing problems due to its slowness and tendency to allocate huge amounts of memory within minutes of startup. FinBlog only uses 9MB of RAM, which is a great improvement.

Go ahead, kick the tires. Let me know what you think.
