New Blog Software Installed!

Ok, so I did do a quick upgrade to Movable Type 4.3, and for the most part, it was pretty painless. Most of the pain associated was that the templates for the site are not quite of the same ilk that the modern software is setup for, so I need to figure out how to go and slice and dice this lovely late 90's era design into the more modern header/footer/CSS style.

A couple of new things you might notice:

  • If you're on an iPhone, you get the iPhone optimized site, courtesy of this template set.
  • Thanks to the HashTag plugin, new posts will be tweeted out via twitter and the fairly newly created @ufies account. Follow it for all your up to date random links and whatnot. Also it'll let me know that people are actually reading this site :)
  • Some new account / commenting options are coming up too, so that (I think) you'll be able to comment with your OpenID, Google ID, and others, and that'll make it way more Web 2.0 (and less of a PITA) to comment and join the conversation. Just have to set it up :)

    Thanks for your patience, assuming you're up at 10-11 or so PST!
