Welcome to the new unbounded! After 5 years and as many site servers, unbounded is now on SilverStripe.
The current site theme is ported from a theme I had used in Typo on Rails.
The prior unbounded.org was based on the Typo blogging system which itself is based on Ruby on Rails. I've now migrated from Rails to SilverStripe due to a number of technical issues I was having with Rails. Or maybe it was lighttpd. Or Akismet. In the end, it was hard for me tell really what was at fault and the end result was that unbounded was going down for days at a time. I'd spent a looong time configuring Rails/db/webserver/etc. because I so wanted to believe in Rails. It's a good framework, but I really don't want to spend the time to experiment with those kinds of things for my blog.
So now the next chapter -- SilverStripe. I'm up and running in lightning-fast time and my old content came across fine (minus the dates of the comments). Of course I'm biased but it really has been a lot easier to deal with SilverStripe than Rails/Typo.
