The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

A life of MTness

As this site begins its second year powered by Movable Type, I've polished up the stylesheet a smidgen and cleared up a blemish or two — and probably induced further coding zits somewhere else that won't be caught right away. A handful of entries from the previous week were imported and their dates changed to match the original hand-coded system, but the very first MT-only posting is this one, a year ago today.

For those curious about the underpinnings: this is the third MT install — I went from 2.21 to 2.51 to 2.64 — and the MySQL database that runs it all consumes 3.31 megabytes of disk space, including 1474 entries and 2548 comments. (The entire site, with all the subsections and whatever, comes to 45 megabytes.) Current bandwidth usage is about 1.4 gigabytes per month, or about what Glenn Reynolds chews up before lunch each day.

As always, I am amazed that anybody at all comes to read these little screeds of mine, and I thank you for coming.

It's like an addiction.

You're telling me? :)

I am also amazed that anyone comes to read my drivel. I am surprised I spend so much time writing drivel. What is it with this obsession to entertain people you never met? ;)

Wouldn't miss it for the world!

I come for the attitude adjustment.

Good stuff, really are one of the bright spots in the Blogosphere (gawd, but I hate that word).

Tiger, old fellow, the people I have met aren't entertained by me in the slightest. ;)

The web is an amazing beast. Build it and they will come. Blogging is also a rather inexpensive therapist :)
