New Django Powered Blog 2 comments

I've have finally put Vellum to rest and put together a new Django powered Blog over Christmas.

Nothing too fancy, the only real feature of note is the Recaptcha powered captchas for which I used this article as a rough guide. A fair bit of time was wasted attempting to use Django's COMMENTS_APP setting to customize Django's comments app to use the captcha, before I realized that COMMENTS_APP is not merely undocumented as the Django docs claim, but actually not working either.

Hopefully now I have finally updated the software Ill get back into the habit of writing regularly as well

Thanks Steve, its not actually that bad, most of the problems stem from markup brought over from the old blog (where I was not aiming for XHTML 1.0 String). Check just this page for example.

But yip, still have a lot of cleanup work to do (a bunch of broken links to files on older posts too).
