Administrative: June 2006 Archives

Trying to get the CSS and spam filtering setup sorted out here, folks. If you can see this entry, though, it means the new blogging software is mostly alive and kicking.

For the past few years I've been running the blog on Rael Dornfest's blosxom. Blosxom is a lightweight efficient blogging engine written in perl. However ...

Blosxom is a good piece of software — lightweight, efficient, and flexible. But I must be getting old or something; maybe I'm just going stale at this programming shtick. It's implemented in such a way that I can't get my head around what it uses in place of comments and trackbacks. Plus, writing entries in hand-carved HTML is a pain. I'm sick and tired of QuickTopic, don't want to pay them $100/year just to get rid of ads and gain the ability to ban readers, and had a Movable Type license kicking around (for Feorag's Prattle).

So this is my first attempt at setting up my blog to run on Movable Type. I'm not going to port the old entries over — there are four year's worth, for starters! — but will preserve them in a static HTML tree once I cut over to using MT instead. Meanwhile, I hope to add a whole bunch of additional features (and start posting more regularly).
