This site has been running on Azure Web Sites for some time. As we are doing this for fun and are not making any money with the site (see any ad?) we had to use the “Shared” pricing tier which was economically acceptable but from a performance and feature point-of-view, well, not great.

…Jekyll

Recently I started publishing some of the PowerShell code I’m writing to GitHub and while browsing around, I stumbled over a static page generator, called Jekyll. I was quite impressed and started hacking around for a little while… after a couple of train rides I was happy with the result and decided to give it a go. So, that’s it:

Work in progress

This migration is a work in progress and therefore not all features the good, old ntsystems.it are available as of today. I intend publishing a few lines about the migration itself, and keeping it up-to-date as we move along and build new features into the site.

We do hope you enjoy our new look. It is all open source, so if you are interested in how we do stuff, just check out our repo Oh and if you find any errors you’d wish to correct, please just send us a pull-request :-)

So long, Tom
