This site is now completely flat and being served directly off of Amazon S3. No PHP or Wordpress.
I did this mainly as an experiment to see how hard it is to pull a dynamic site back out of a CMS like Wordpress. Not needing a server makes this ridiculously cheap to host and being distributed in Amazon's S3 infrastucture it's fast.
There are several site "compilers" out there, but I settled on Blogofile. It's python. It adheres to my core concept of separating code, content and design; and the templating language (mako) was very simple to pick up.
