Reinstall of blog software (Crossing Fingers)

Since I broke for the umpteenth time my Movable Type install, I figured I’d just reinstall the whole thing with new blogging software. Now I am importing from MT using install instructions intended for WP 2.0 so not sure how it is going to go, but my fingers are crossed.

For the time being you can find my old MT archives here, until the time when I’m able to move it all over. Bonus archives! I put my old Blogger archives on blogspot, which I’m also going to (today? someday?) move over in the massive merge. Images are missing, and they’re kind of janky, but heck, all 1500 posts are there. The even earlier handwritten ones are lost to the ages. I think they may be on a Syquest or Zip disk somewhere.

And I’d blocked Internet Archive with my robots.txt a while back when I was having a mania about the internet needing to forget; and I’ve reconciled myself to internet losses. A little data loss is a good thing.

  1. Caterina, for pete’s sake, hire someone to deal with all that mess! You’ve got better things to do than reconciling years’ worth of blog archives across multiple different platforms.
