Launched my new site.

Just completed the setup of my new site. Still need to do a lot of customisation to the site.

WordPress makes it really easy to get something professional up and running within a minimal amount of time and with very little effort. Having all of these great opensource tools at one’s disposal is a privilege. Kudos to everybody involved!

Before deploying the site on my hosting company’s server, I installed WordPress into my Kubuntu 14.04.1 (nothing beats KDE combined with Ubuntu right 😉 ) development box to allow me to tweak away on it a bit before making it publicly available.

Crazy how easy it is to setup a lamp web development machine on Ubuntu / Kubuntu. You just run these two commands:

sudo apt-get install tasksel
sudo tasksel

Then select lamp server and “Ok”, and just provide the required passwords when prompted.

I used Filezilla to upload the WordPress site to my host.

My intention with this site linked to the domain that carries my name is to use it as a central repository of info about myself, my doings and my thoughts.
