I had to fight a little bit, but after 12 months of no posts, I finally upgraded from a broken Movable Type 2.6 install to WordPress 2.7. While I’ve advanced a mere .1 on the version number, the last seven years have been kind to the blog software world. WOW. What a difference. It looks like it will take a bit to clear up the mess as comments are still a little whacked, but the heavy lifting is officially over. Since I didn’t have to install my own SQL server or muck around with 50 different config settings, getting a blog up and running certainly does not feel like the geeky endeavor it was in 2002. Thank you WordPress Gods.
