The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

3 June 2006

Dear God, what have I done?

Actually, what I've done is jump over a few intervening releases (like almost three years' worth) and installed MovableType 3.2.

There may be some anomalies during the first few days as I discover all the things I did wrong during this two-hour adventure, and comments will be accepted but probably will not immediately appear, as I am trying to establish a baseline for, um, Trusted Commenters. (I am trying to avoid having to send everyone to TypePad if I can help it, but the default comment process in 3.2 is convoluted in the extreme.)

I figure, though, if I moved over an 18-megabyte database with over 6600 posts, and nothing crashed right away, I have some sort of angel looking over my shoulder, and not that dimwit from Capital One either.

Addendum: It's everywhere. Terra Extraneus is going to first-comment moderation to ward off the dirtballs.

Considering how long I spent in 2002....

I still haven't bothered to upgrade to 3.2. I should probably do that.
