Movable Type

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 21 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

I’ve moved from Blogger to Movable Type. Blogger was great, but Movable Type (MT) is installed on my server and allows me a lot more flexibility in managing this Weblog.

As part of the transition, I’ve imported all the archives into MT, so now the permalink for each entry points to a new URL. To make sure that I don’t break people’s links to my pages, all of the old blog entries are also still here at the same permalink URL they have always been at.

The only bad thing about the conversion is that old comments weren’t preserved. MT has a built-in comments system that has more features than my old homegrown one, so I decided to use that. There’s no easy way to import the old comments, so I just left them alone.

The URL for the RSS feed has also changed. The new URL is The old RSS URL now only contains one item in the feed that points you to the new feed URL.
