It always comes back to WordPress

I've tried Geeklog, Joomla, Drupal (which I have an unreasonable dislike for, and I can't tell you why) and several other CMSes, but WordPress just has everything. Everything. With a few plugins, you can make it perfect for just about anything. I use it for my personal blog/linkblog/saving of favorite articles, and it does everything I want and a few things I didn't know I wanted before I installed them.

Open Source Projects

I've been playing around with OSS (open-source software) and trying to increase my knowledge of basic PHP/Javascript/possibly Python (although so far, I am not doing very well with it. But I persevere!). I'm keeping track of my adventures in code via bookmarks here (using one of my successes, Shaarli).

It's not a complete list, but I'm working on it. I've installed/uninstalled so much stuff over the past few weeks that it's hard to keep track of the non-successes. (Screw you, non-successes.) I've had great successes with RSS readers, CMS software and photo galleries, so expect to see a lot of that in the bookmarks.

I still am entirely incapable of using WordPress for blogging, because I get distracted by the shiny, shiny plugins. I have an offline copy of it installed that I use to track books/save bookmarks, but even with that one I get lost in a timesink of plugins and themes. Damn you, WordPress.
