Utterson Renamed To Newcomen

While Utterson was a much nicer name, there already is a static blog generator with this name. So I decided to rename it to Newcomen, another character in Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”. There are probably better names, but Newcomen had the same number of letters, saving me some potential reformatting work after the search and replace. Basically all I had to do was a

find . -type f -exec \
    sed -i 's/Utterson/Newcomen/g' {} \;

and rename a few files and folders. Due to the new name, I changed the version number of all modules to 2014052501, but apart from the name nothing has changed.

I also changed all previous blog posts, category and tag names. That wasn’t really necessary, but it’s easier to keep all related stuff in one place. So the URLs have changed, too, but you should be redirected to the new one if you try to access an old Utterson URL.
