Migrating to WordPress

WordPressI have decided to migrate my blog from Nucleus CMS to WordPress. Nucleus CMS was great when I started the blog, but WordPress meanwhile has way surpassed it in flexibility and capability. At the same time I moved the site to the new DreamPress service of Dreamhost. A very affordable VPS hosting solution optimised for WordPress. During migration this site is work in progress.
