No, I haven't disappeared!...I have decided to change the platform for this site, I will most likely move to wordpress. It's going to take quite some time to migrate all the contents, I plan to do it during the Christmas holidays so I can start afresh in 2011.

Developing the blog myself may have been a good idea initially, as no product would completely suit my needs (multilingual handling for instance), but with the explosion of social networks and their related standards within the last couple years, it is not a viable solution anymore. An individual just doesn't have time to develop the necessary components to keep up with the pace.

Update (01/27/2011): I just changed my mind and decided to keep the architecture as is after all. After studying wordpress more thoroughly, I realized that I would have to redevelop too many things to migrate and it's just not worth it...
