Belated Friday Five

I haven't done a Friday Five for ages, but I like the look of this one.

  1. How long have you had a weblog?
    Since January 10th 2002
  1. What was your first post about?
    Whether the people I was teaching HTML and web design would like blogs for their embryonic sites, and how it all worked.
  1. How many changes (name, location, etc.) of your weblog have there been, if more than one?
    I went through three name changes in a week, then stuck with Quantum Rose, which was the name of my web site, until I found a book by the same name.  Finally I settled on Quantum Tea.  I think it's unique.
  1. What content management system do you use? Do you like it or do you want to try something else?
    I use a program called Blog, which is improving with each release.  I want to be using Chronicle, and I will as soon as I finish writing the thing.  Chronicle is a 100% Java blog management thingy, with data stored in a local hsql database.  To publish, entries are extracted from the database as XML files, and a custom XSL transform is used to turn them into HTML.  Haven't got uploading or archiving done yet, but it works as a standalone diary program already.
  1. Do you read people who have both a journal and a weblog? Or do you prefer to read people who have all of their writing in one central place?
