I've finally jumped the bandwagon and migrated my blog to jekyll, takes a little to get used to, but I can't say I regret it.
There are still some rough edges to fix like the tag cloud(a new layout wouldn't be such a bad idea either), but anyway it was about time I dumped mephisto.
For some reason using pygments does not work with the auto refresh config option. It won't spit out an error, but it will just not properly render the page. Also textile support with RedCloth has an issue with ruby 1.9.2.
