Return of the Sloth

Well, that took a while, didn't it? (There is a reason the totem for this weblog is a sloth.) Without going into the gory details, I'll just say that an otherwise-valuable system upgrade back in May broke Movable Type. After learning more than I ever wanted to know about NFS, SQL, PHP, and similar TLAs, I concluded that it should never have worked in the first place. So I put fixing this weblog at the top of my list of things to do, and ignored it for several months. Then, a few weekends ago, I got up at six a.m. and started writing Perl to convert everything over to Blosxom. (It's amazing what can be accomplished with the combination of the meta and interpolate_fancy plugins and Apache's URL re-writing engine.) Everything should work now, and look pretty much the same, except that the RSS feed has moved to, and trackback, sadly, is dead. Do let me know if anything else is broken.

The regular service of self-indulgent geekery, ill-considered political ravings and over-long, under-informed pontification will now resume.
