After much kicking and swearing and Crispy M&Ms, finally got the Movable Type cooking. It won't look much different to you but it should be a whole lot easier for me to run back here. Exxxcellent.
You may need to hit Refresh a few times to clear the old pussycat out of your browser. I also don't have Netscape here at work so if it looks like turds in your browser, please let me know!
Thankyou to Daniel-san, who was the charmer that bullied me into converting to MT in the first place, then spent many hours installing the software, helping me with templates and stylesheets, and listening to me bitch and scream about what a waste of time the whole exercise was. Hehe. The archive page has moved, and has shrunk dramatically. I managed to bulldoze 1300 entries down to 400, so most of the shitty "I hate the world! I want chocolate! Work sucks!" one line posts are gone.
We also now have proper comments, so you can stop emailling to say Mr Guestbook is clunky and inconvenient. But he'll still be there if you need him, all 849 glorious entries of the cranky ol bastard.
You can now expect the usual rambling posts o' shite, but now I'll probably whack a gratuitous question at the end to beg for comments. Don't just love how people do that? It goes something like this: Entry about me. Me say things about me so me look cool/tortured/cute/angsty/unique/endearing. Me me me me. Me again. Me. So… how about you? Click here to leave a comment!
Of course, if nobody panders to my thinly-disguised pleas for validation, I will probably rip down the comments code and flee to Guatemala or drink heavily or become a nun.
