So I spent some quality time this weekend and "backported" the site to the current pyblosxom HEAD. I managed to get all my old plugins working as well which is a big plus. The next step is a new site design since I am tired of the current one. Let's see how this is coming together.
So eventually I got sick of all the comment spam I got recently. That's why I switched the comment system to DISQUS. While the switch was easy I did not take my time to migrate the existing comments.
Update: So this was a short foray into the world of DISQUS. I switched back to the pyblosxom internal comment system. While looking nice, I think it is overkill for this site.
