A New Start To The Blog

The last real post that I made here was in 2015, so this has been a long time coming. In the past four years or so I’ve diversified my online personal sharing onto other platforms like facebook and instagram, and the blog has fallen by the wayside. Lately I’ve become a bit disallused with with

Comments Turned Off

Sorry but I’m sick of deleting 30 comments a day from some Chinese guy trying to spam about headphones or some crap like that, and considering I don’t get enough actual comments (or traffic that isn’t spam) to worry about it, you know you can just send me an email or something.

Upgraded Movable Type

Upgraded to MovableType 3.3 (finally). Seems to work quite nicely, and the upgrade routine was pretty easy, other than a minor PITA with a static files directory setting having to be changed (the directory with all the javascript libraries and such, causing the admin interface to basically not work). Notable improvements are lots of little
