All is well.

I think I have all my old journal entries imported now. I had to do a little editing (and got to fix a few old typos in the process), and a whole bunch of perl coding, but I eventually got it to go. Woo hoo!

Needless to say -- I'm fairly pleased that I didn't end up losing 2.5 years of blog entries. First entry was on 12 July, 2002. There have been 314 entries since then. That's a lot of typing.

I miss some of my old shortcuts that I had with jjc, though. I'll have to look and see if there's a way to get some of those back. MoveableType is many, many lines of dense perl code; the prospect of diving through it does not thrill me. I also need a way to automatically mail out new entries to subscribers. There's built-in functionality to manually do that, but it's not quite what I want (e.g., mail is not sent as HTML, have to do it manually, etc.).

We'll have to see what happens (i.e., how inspired I get :-)).

I should add that M&D got their ReplayTV working just fine (after a few false starts) and seem to be enjoying it. Yummy!
