A few years back, I moved from a fairly generic Wordpress-based blog to a statically-generated system based on secondcrack. It was a fairly simple system, that I immediately hacked up to add different post types, lists, and other taxonomy-like things.

But I did help out a little, commenting on the puzzles they were putting together and generally offering advice.
