Steve, here, with the first posting in Ian’s upgraded blog.
Notwithstanding my whining comments about Movable Type last week, I did finally manage to migrate Ian’s web site to Movable Type 3.14.
Why do you care as a reader? Well, I hope this will boost Ian’s morale, by making it easier and more fun to keep this blog!
The new MT will, we hope, reduce the time Ian spends defending against comment spam. There’s comment moderation now, and a new version of MT-Blacklist that can do lots more, easier.
At the same time, I made a few other improvements. We’re on a much faster server now, with pretty much unlimited disk space. (That’ll make my job easier, since I won’t have to constantly manage the disk space.) I also switched to a faster, more capable database.
I put a lot of time in on this. I hope it helps Ian stay enthusiastic about blogging, and I hope it helps the readers stay engaged.
Let me know how the new system works for you!
