Second home

In an effort to write-up my research/ideas/to-do-lists on a regular basis I've created a research blog. I did have a very basic version previously, but it was just a simple html webpage and had no features whatsoever. For this blog I've made use of wordpress as it has very easily installable software - I only had to get out local sys admin to do one thing which was set up a mySQL database for me. Hopefully this will encourage me to keep regular research notes, which will now be handily archived and tagged depending on the subject.


  1. Ah, but does it handle LaTeX? Surely that is a must in any research blog? In fact, there might be a market for such a piece of software.

  2. For LaTeX i'll just have to use the old <img src="/cgi-bin/mimetex.cgi?> trick, or link a pdf or postscript. But a blog that could automatically handle LaTeX would be sweet.
