I didn’t realize it until a month after the fact, but this site turned 10 years old in August. Time flies, doesn’t it?
I remember trying to decide which platform to use before deciding on Movable Type. Now I’m using WordPress. I remember switching hosts at some point, but I don’t remember why. I’m sure it’s in the archives somewhere. I’ve gone through at least a couple of different redesigns.
Blogging isn’t as popular as it used to be, but I hope I’m still doing some form of this 10 years from now. It’s a good way to help remember things that happened to me. I’m going to try to write more often in the future, but I’m pretty sure I’ve said that before :).
Over the past few days I’ve made a few little changes to the site. I mostly copied things I’ve seen other people do. The site may be slightly more modern now.
I added an option to the sidebar to subscribe to new posts by email.
I also added Disqus comments. I thought about adding Disqus a couple of years ago, but I didn’t like the idea of having something other than WordPress manage my comments. Now, I don’t really care. I sign in to Disqus when I comment on sites that support it.
Lastly, in a few places I made cosmetic fixes to issues that have been bugging me for a while. It’s not perfect, but it’s better. Note: I test this site with Chrome. I’m not responsible for what you see if you’re using an inferior browser.

Just testing out the WordPress app for the iPhone. Pretty neat.
When WordPress 2.5.1 came out a few weeks ago I immediately upgraded. This update is such a drastic improvement visually and I haven’t had any problems using it so far.
Of course, people that just come here to read the entries won’t see any difference. However, if you use WordPress on your site and haven’t upgraded to 2.5.1, don’t wait any longer.

I guess Movable Type pissed me off one too many times, so I just decided to try something different. I had been working some on trying to finalize those design changes I started on a while back. Yesterday I tried to upgrade to Movable Type 4.1 and things got screwed up. I wasn’t in a mood to try to figure out how to get things right again, so I decided to switch to something else. It gave me a chance to redesign the site and switch to a new platform. I decided on WordPress. I’m sure I’ll have issues with WordPress, but for now I’m happy. I even decided to pick out a theme from their website instead of spending a lot of time coming up with one on my own. One of the reasons I wasn’t blogging as much is that I wasn’t happy with the look of the site. Now I won’t be worrying about that. I’ll get the other pages up sooner or later.
