Up and running on the Alpha Blog Engine!

As I wrote in a post back in October, I’ve been writing my own blog engine, with the plan to run my blog on that instead. And today, finally, I was able to migrate my blog to my own blog engine, called Alpha! It took a little longer than I had hoped (the Devil is in the details…), and there are still lots of things I want to do on it, but it seems to work nicely, and I’m pretty happy with it!

A quick overview of the Alpha Blog Engine:

It’s built to be the perfect blog platform for a technical blogger, assuming that you can run it on a Windows Server, that is. Making it able to run on Mono is on my to-do-list, though.
