I ain’t afraid of no Ghost

A while ago I bought the domain name baudehlo.com for this blog, and wanted to try out some blog software.

So I had a brief play with Ghost today. It was fairly straightforward for me to install (being someone who knows Node.js and understands the ecosystem), but in the end I decided it just wasn’t ready for prime time. WordPress.com offers me so much beyond just hosting – they provide comments, stats, subscriptions, etc. So I decided to pay the $99 a year to get my domain name on here, which also allowed me to get rid of the ugly font used in the headlines. So I’m not moving my blog – it’s staying right here, but has redirected now to baudehlo.com. Enjoy!

  1. Hi, just found your blog via haraka github, but if you don’t mind i’m asking, could i know why you choose baudehlo for the domain name of your blog?

    • When I first started on IRC I chose the username “baud” (a play on the fact that I would chat when I was bored, combined with the reference to modem speeds). When that username became less available in places and I started to work in email/SMTP I added the “ehlo” to the end, which is a verb in SMTP, which is also a play on the word “bordello”. So it’s just a username I use everywhere now, and kind of an online nickname.
