I don't consider it 'leaving' actually. I just finally got around to setting up my own site again, and decided to just install WordPress.
Then I started blogging about running, which I recently picked up and got annoyed that I had thereby created my 4th blogging place. I wanted to have everything in one place.

So I just managed to import all my old use.perl entries (not the comments) in my new blog. (I imported the others already)
Maybe one day I'll get the spirit to automatically post my wordpress entries here...dunno.

I finally got around to set up For now it only contains Dutch information, but I'll be blogging in English when it will be about Perl or IT in general.

My guess is that blogging here won't be happening that much anymore.

That's too bad. I'm on OSX, and it works like a charm there. I believe I read somewhere that 64bit linux is not yet supported, but I'm not sure about it.

It is in an early stage, but not very early. Indeed the docs aren't very complete, but hey, how much docs do you need if you can write plain HTML/CSS/Javascript with a little sugar?

I'm not yet using much of the Titanium-specific API, mostly because of lacking docs, but also because I don't have much need for that part yet...

I recently started playing with Appcelerator Titanium or Titanium for short. It's an extremely cool tool that lets you build desktop or mobile apps using standard web technology like HTML, CSS and Javascript. The real coolness of it (to me) is that it also allows the developer to use Ruby, Python and C++ in <script> tags. The really uncool thing is that Perl is not on their radar.
