zarzax blog engine moved to Wordpress:

Over the last few weeks I decided to move from Drupal to Wordpress. I've always liked Wordpress and is near impossible to beat as an Open Source blogging platform.

Some plugins of interest::

MobilePress

MobilePress is a WordPress plugin that will render your WordPress blog on mobile handsets, with the ability to use customized themes. The plugin also allows specific themes for specific devices / mobile browsers, such as iPhone, Opera Mini, Windows CE Mobile and other generic handset browsers. - http://mobilepress.co.za

Google XML Sitemaps

Creating custom xml sitemaps by hand is a pain. This plugin will create them dynamically and create a static xml page as well as a zipped version for lower bandwidth.

Twitter Tools

Twitter Tools integrates with Twitter by giving you the following functionality:
  • Archive your Twitter tweets (downloaded every 10 minutes)
  • Create a blog post from each of your tweets
  • Create a daily or weekly digest post of your tweets
  • Create a tweet on Twitter whenever you post in your blog, with a link to the blog post
  • Post a tweet from your sidebar
  • Post a tweet from the WP Admin screens
  • Pass your tweets along to another service (via API hook)
