Blog, should I?
Posted by: Kyran
Date: September 21, 2006 10:29PM

I was going to make a post about XSS that was fairly trivial to post, but it got me thinking. Now that I understand it more, should I setup a blog?

It would be purely technical. Random jabberings about my thoughts about exploits.
I have a domain. I would probably host it at blogger.com(unless someone would give me a corner on their server). I doubt it would get much attention, but I feel the need to have a better way to organize this mess I call a brain.

It never hurts if you think people would have interest in reading it. I've got to say from personal experience, it's a real pain in the ass. The forums are much easier to deal with. I guess the hardest part of the blog is keeping the content relevant and up to date. It's a big commitment - especially because this isn't my job by any stretch of the imagination.

I've had non-personal based blogs before. I know they can be quite a hassle just to keep mildly interesting. But, in the end it may be more rewarding.

...mainly because I have the weirdest memory abilities imaginable. Sometimes I can't remember last week. Sometimes I can remember something from when I was 4. Perhaps getting it all down will expand my understanding of the topic, if it does nothing but bore everyone else.

Hmm. Now just to think of a skin/theme and a place to put it.

Well if you think people will read it or you'll get something out of it you should definitely do it.

It's setup. On [kyran.wordpress.com].

As soon as my domain points to it, I'll tell you what it is.

EDIT : Having some domain issues. Until they actually implement domain mapping I'm just going to leave it at the current wordpress address for trackbacks, linking etc. If you're interested, http://www.kyran.ca points there.

Looks good... I like wordpress, even though I think I'm close to publishing some vulnerabilities in it. :(

WordPress has a cool interface, but the internals are horrible.

Yeah. It's probably just the wordpress.com site, but the admin controls take forever to load.

I need to get a good job so I can afford hosting.

If you have a net connection that doesn't block inbound port 80, a static IP (or not with dyndns, etc), a couple hundred $$ and arn't afraid of learning a bit you can host for cheap.

I host on a computer that I bought for $200, a friend hosts on his old 500mhz laptop with a broken screen, others host off of their PC (risky). Also see the "low power requirement server" or something like that thread in this forum.

I've been thinking about that for awhile. My connection is rather fast. 10mbps down, 1 up. Now if only I could get my other computer working...

I would need some help with securing it, but I know how to setup a webserver on a few *nix based OS'. Although I would really want to try Unix.

Moved it. http://kyran.ca/wordpress and updated it. Theme, server, plugins and even some content! I'll get around to getting all my posts from the wordpress.com one to this one later.

Never had much with opinions and blogging, dunno why, but ditching random rants on a forum seems a better way for me. I do have a blog, but i only park little annoying scripts on it, purely for my own reference.
