A New Home For My Blog

A screenshot of my new blog First of all, a big "Thank You!" to you, my dear readers and the more than 500 subscribers (according to Feedburner) to this blog!

After having blogged here, on my Sun blog, for more than 5 years, I thought that the year 2010 is the right time to start running my own, independent blog. This is a thought that I've been having in my mind for a long time, and it is also something like the next logical step in developing myself as a blogger. Also, to me as a geek, it is a great excuse to play more deeply with some new blogging/CMS software.

New Year, New Blog

During the Christmas weeks (and before), I've been digging around different blogging systems and CMS and decided to use Drupal as my blogging platform, which is very powerful and flexible while offering endless possibilities to expand my blog in the future. It is hosted at Strato, which is a great Sun customer in Germany, and I'm happy to see that they use UltraSPARC T based systems to run my blog, too :).

So, without further ado, I encourage you to check out my new blog called: "Constant Thinking". You can reach it at constantin.glez.de or just type constantthinking.org into your browser. I'm looking forward to your feedback and suggestions: What do you like, what improvements do you suggest, what subjects do you want me to blog about?

Future Plans

I expect to continue writing about OpenSolaris, Technology, Home Servers, Podcasting, and some occasionaly useful diversions, like you're accustomed to. As a result of building my new blog, I've dug deeper into the Drupal Web Content Management System, so expect a few articles around that, too. Finally, I've also developed an interest in ebooks, readers and the EPUB format and I plan to share some experience around that as well in future blog articles.

Stay In Touch!

I hope you like the new concept and design and I'd like to encourage you to subscribe to the new Constant Thinking RSS Feed, so we can stay in touch at least the next 5 years to come!

Congratulations Constantin!

Your blog, along with Tim Foster's, were the biggest inspirations that got me interested in ZFS, so I thank you again, and I look forward to reading interesting articles on your new blog.

Cheers,
Simon

Are you off the Sun?

Hi Andrius,

don't worry, I'm still at Sun and I look forward to a lot of exciting things coming down the road :).

Thanks for asking.

Maybe a few clarifications:

- I've been thinking of running my own blog system since more than a year. There's no significant correlation with recent or future events.
- This is simply my geeky desire to run more of the blogging infrastructure on my own, so I can try out more things.
- I've submitted my new Blog URL and RSS Feed to the blogs.sun.com system, so new posts on my new blog will still show up on the blogs.sun.com homepage.

Thanks,
Constantin
