[<<] Industrie Toulouse

The future of this weblog is up in the air right now. I've enjoyed some free hosting from a friend and former coworker for years, but events beyond our control is bringing that to an end. With that in mind, I've been thinking about what to do now. My own site, euc.cx, has a somewhat clouded future right now as well. Presently, I can't really run anything dynamic (server side) on it, which hasn't bothered me as much as I thought it would. The closest it gets to anything dynamic is the subsite DDEC, which is maintained by an old (and modified) version of FTrain Sitekit as a collection of XSLT transforms that are run on my iMac and then uploaded manually. I'm considering using the same method to maintain Industrie Toulouse in the future - hopefully, the near future. I need to dust off my pitiful XSLT skills and transform the Movable Type XML export I cobbled together recently just to make the transform into a Sitekit capable format. From there... who knows?

I'm looking at other options - Blogger, PyBlosxom, etc, but I don't know how far I'll get with any of those. A lot of this is due to euc.cx's future being cloudy. At the office, we talk of making the box that it's on more of an experimental box and giving me more control to work with different technologies, etc, on it. But there's no date tagged onto when that possibility will open up. And even then, there's only so much energy left in my being to monkey with new technologies - as much as I may one to. So at times I dream of a Zope 3 based system, or Subway, or even Rails... And one or more of those may actually happen. But for some reason, the XSLT bug is starting to kick at me again.

I guess that the best message I can give right now is "stay tuned..."

There are still many things that I want to write about, to be sure.
