A new Magnum website coming soon

Wel­come to a pro­to­type of the brand new Mag­num web­site and blog! It still has quite a few rough edges, so please be care­ful, but from now on this is the new of­fi­cial place for blog posts and an­nounce­ments.

The rea­son I de­cid­ed to make the web­site pub­lic even though it’s not ful­ly ready yet is that I des­per­ate­ly need­ed some of­fi­cial space for putting fea­ture an­nounce­ments and blog posts. The old web­site in­fra­struc­ture al­ready showed its age and au­thor­ing an ar­ti­cle for it was a mat­ter of days due to tech­ni­cal debt of the PHP code orig­i­nat­ing back in 2004 (I feel old now).

The on­ly thing that’s here now is the con­tent from the old web­site, copied over ver­ba­tim for archival rea­sons. In the next weeks I will go over ev­ery­thing and put up some ac­tu­al­ly up-to-date in­for­ma­tion and vis­ual iden­ti­ty ev­ery­where.

From now on, source of this web­site will be avail­able on GitHub. It’s pow­ered by Pel­i­can and m.css (for which I still need to write doc­u­men­ta­tion). This all means that ev­ery­one is now very wel­come to con­trib­ute to the web­site — fix­ing up out­dat­ed con­tent, writ­ing guest posts and so on. More on that lat­er.

Un­til next time!
