Movable Type Redux

At this point, after messing around with Movable Type some more, the question that arises in my mind is why I didn’t convert to it before. The analogy I can come up with off the top of my head is this: Imagine that you have to get across the Pacific ocean, and the only method of travel available to you is mechanical wings that you strap on, and you have to flap your arms to fly. Then somebody comes along and says, “Hey, I’ve got a 747 I’m not using, you can have it if you want. Heck, I’ll even pilot it for you while you sit in first class and enjoy a Coke.” Then he gives you the address where a bunch of 747 enthusiasts meet, and at their weekly meeting (there’s free pie), one of them says, “Well, I’ve taken a look at the engine structure, and I’ll help you install some upgrades if you’ll pull the wrench, it should cut down your travel time by half.” Then another one says, “Yeah, I found a way to make the seats recline all the way, here’s some detailed instructions on how to do it.”

That’s what using Movable Type is like, versus using my custom software. I feel like I’ve just been rocketed from the stone age, hitting Ug with rocks, to the space age, firing lasers and anti-matter missiles at Jithoric.
