Ch-ch-ch-changes

For Advent, I’ve switched on the job queue feature of Movable Type 4 so I can schedule entries. One rather unpleasant side-effect (which I don’t think is present in WordPress) is that the blog checks for new events every ten minutes, so if you post a comment, don’t be surprised if it doesn’t show up right away.

Advent 2008: Window 1

And who’s the first to come through our chimney? Why it’s Brian Higgins and his gang of Xenomaniacs!

“Ho, ho, ho! I’ve brought a wonderful surprise! A Kylie Minogue b-side and, because you’ve all been so good this year, our remix of Kenickie’s Stay In The Sun! Now, if you don’t mind, I have to go back to the studio and untangle our next hit! Ho ho ho!”

Teething Difficulties

Bah…

One Step Forward

I have MovableType 4 installed. Current damage seems to be limited to the comment template. which I’ll try to have a look at during the weekend.

I was also promising a new design, but I’m concerned that my Futura-heavy idea is a little behind the times these days. Back to the drawing board…

Also, I seem to be having a few troubles with Dreamhost and Gmail. I can’t log into Gmail at all right now, and Dreamhost is about 24 hours behind on forwarding mail to my account. So if I’m a little tardy in replying, I swear it’s not my fault…

Update: Gmail seems to be back, so if you want to mail there, I’ll get the message a lot quicker!

Hello!

MovableType 4, where are you?

A Quiet Week

I will, at some point (possibly Friday, maybe Saturday) install Movable Type 4 so commenting can come back. The site may look hideous for a week or two, but you will be able to comment on the Top 20-or-so rundown of the year! I bet you’re excited!

Hmm.

Comments appear to be disabled at Dreamhost’s orders. If I wasn’t trying to recover the school’s website from a total hard disk failure, I would do something about it. For now, you will just have to hold tight!

SELECT * FROM BIG_DATABASE

vs.

SELECT CHILD_NAME, NI FROM BIG_DATABASE

Does EDS really charge that much? Really?
