Oh grep! I spent some of my spare time the last days grepping the crud out of supernaut’s database. Much excitement, of course. The result is that now all the image file paths point to the default WordPress uploads folder, organized by year and month, and also all images are in the Media Library. So my slow task of disentangling supernaut from its previous years in Ecto and Movable Type, and hooking it properly into WordPress (which should mean if I ever decide to swap to another platform will mean less pain) proceeds slowly.
I decided for the manual path for coping with all the rubbish html surrounding the images as the thought of properly grepping all that caused my eyes to water, so currently I’m working my way through June, 2004. Shall take months, I’m sure.
Six months ago, deliriously annoyed with Movable Type, and deeply envious of all those people using WordPress. I install WP, throw a theme framework on top and promptly run away, terrified of what harrowing coding ordeals would ensue when I … Continue reading
I have spent a lazy Saturday transferring supernaut over to WordPress (more on that there). The result of that for the moment is the old Movable Type site exists at supernaut.info/index1.html and in the static archives while the new at … Continue reading
uuhhh… When I started finding odd stuff in my Movable Type install for supernaut I knew the end was near. I’ve been putting this off for a long time, especially doing projects for others using WordPress and thinking, “uuhhh… this … Continue reading
That will teach me to brazenly copy-paste with no thought to the consequences. Wondering why new posts weren’t showing up, I discovered I’d replaced the index page template with the entire contents of my darling blog’s statically-generated page through some … Continue reading
I noticed recently it’s been almost two years since I did this site design. That I’m not so bored with it yet, I guess speaks either of my limitless ability to avert said boredom, or that I managed to do … Continue reading
Does it look like I’m avoiding doing real work today, with a monster funding application due on Monday, what do I do? Muck around with Movable Type’s atrociously obtuse templates and horrendous css, all to try and get comments not … Continue reading
During my rather pitiful self-help attempt at getting comments working, that quite possibly soon will be after a couple of people pointed out what I was missing, I also discovered I could easily fix a couple of the bugs hanging … Continue reading
I’ve been planning on turning on comments again for a while, but there is the issue of a sacrificed goat preventing me. Around 2 1/2 years ago, I turned off comments on my blog, I think it was MT2.6-ish. I … Continue reading
Finally I have added some new categories that have been eating at me like some rapacious tropical parasite. It a tussle between accuracy of categories, and keeping the category list short enough to be useful, and balancing all that with … Continue reading
