Switching to Typo

I am switching the blog to [Typo](http://typo.leetsoft.com/), blog software written in [Ruby](http://rubylang.org), using the [Rails](http://rubyonrails.com) framework.

The hard part is getting the software to run fast and run where I want it [http://znark.com/blog/](http://znark.com/blog/). FastCGI and Apache don’t seem to work with my hosting company. So I could run it through CGI which means the each page loads slowly as it compiles tons of Ruby libraries.

A popular solution at [TextDrive](http://www.textdrive.com/) is to run a personal [Lighttpd](http://www.lighttpd.net/) web server process on an assigned port. Then, Apache can proxy to lighttpd so nobody has to remember to go to [http://blog.znark.com:8090/](http://blog.znark.com:8090/).

However, I haven’t figured out how to get typo to go in a subdirectory while running under a subdirectory. Lighttpd doesn’t yet have all the rewrite functionality needed. Until I get this figured out, the blog may be broken or not have any style.
