I became fed up with Movable Type. It turns out that the “mandatory update” included bundled “Pro” software, etc. that I neither wanted nor needed. I couldn’t get it to configure correctly over my old installation, which then wasn’t available for re-installation. Rather than kill myself I decided to take another look at WordPress. As it turns out, I have a program (Fantastico De Luxe for them what are interested) that came with my hosting package, and it did all of the work for me. Every last bit of it.
So here you see me. Obviously I’ll be doing a lot of work on this site as time permits. For those who might be worried, I still have the archives from my old blog stashed away somewhere if needed.
Life, it seems, is good.
