Upgrade to Movable Type 3.0

Website160 words1 minutes to read

Well, my upgrade to Movable Type 3.0 went well. I’ve decided to stick with MT for now. I’m still considering Wordpress for my “big redesign” since it’s written in PHP, and therefore easier for me to hack at. We’ll see how it all actually turns out though.

For the time being, I’m still accepting all comments from everyone. However, provided that I’m still using MT a few months from now, I’m planning on requiring a TypeKey account for unmoderated comments. Users without a TypeKey account (a few months from now, mind you) will still be able to post comments, but I will moderate them before they actually get displayed on my site.

At the same time, I’m questioning the need for this. Since I released Blocker 1.2, I haven’t had any automated comment spam attacks. So far, I have excellently behaved commentors, so I may very well not require comment registration at all.

Anyways, welcome to my MT3-powered personal site.
