It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top.

This blog system is the culmination of many many long and tedious hours of coding. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it. A large amount of credit must go to the creator of the "© FlatPress Blog", Edoardo Vacchi(NoWhereMan) currently maintained by Arvid Zimmermann, which my system is modeled from.

FlatPress runs on any web server (e.g. Apache or IIS) with PHP 5.6 or higher. Since all data is stored in files, no database is needed however, my conversion requires PHP-Fusion CMS and a MySQL database.

When I began my quest to find a good blog system, because I'm not comfortable using WordPress, I did not know that it would be so difficult. I looked at many many different systems before I decided to write my own. Doing so has been one of the greatest scripting challenges of my entire computing journey. It may not be pretty and is probably quite different from blogs you may be familiar with but it is functional, user friendly and was a labor of love.

A special thanks to my friend and colleague Fred Bonani who provided deep insight and coding assistance for this monumental project. It would not have been possible without his unswerving commitment to excellance and integrity in coding practices.

We are a group who believe in the freedom of choice; hence the creation of this blog system is a testament to free will, freedom of speech and the freedom of creativity that comes with a democratic, free society.

Comments may be deleted if deemed inappropriate for this blog but please, exercise your inalienable right to freedom of speech here. Just be kind, fair and honest in all you do and say. Big Brother is listening !
