I have not updated by blog that much this year but I did move away from self hosting and into WordPress.com . Self hosting is great to learn and tinker with but at some point the hassle to maintain the site and also update the plugins etc. In the transition though, I did not migrate all my posts, and it is a good way to start afresh. I have had the archives since almost 2006 and maybe one of these days I will upload it.
Also I love ThinkPads and I recently ordered the X1 Carbon (link) and it is finally being shipped after some delays, cannot wait to get my hands on it. I think I will install Windows 8 and Xubuntu. A review coming up soon!
Happy New Year and I will be back with a few updates in the New Year.
