I am considering changing from b2 over to Wordpress. In fact I am pretty sure I am going to do it. It is just a matter of getting the theme to my liking.

I am really starting to like the simplicity of this mode of communication. After dealing with the complexities of Nuke and PostNuke for all these years, I think most folks are coming back to a simplier time. I think this is it. I for one am impressed thus far. Just a bit torn if I want to open it up to anyone tho. But what’s the use….if you just keep it to your self anyway.
