Thinking about a switch from Movable Type to Word Press

@ 04:32 PM | Filed Under: Website (t) | Comments (1) | Cosmos

I've been thinking about switching some or all of my websites' mini content management system from Movable Type to Word Press for at least a year. Dreamhost recently set up some sort of "one click" Word Press install that works very well. And yesterday, Christine linked to a huge amount of Word Press resources, plugins, etcetera. It'll be pretty easy to move this site over; but I'm not sure about Exploit Boston! since the calendar plugins I use that Brad Choate and Kevin Shay wrote are specifically for Movable Type. I recently moved Exploit Boston! over to Textdrive; but I doubt I'd have too much trouble setting up Word Press from scratch.

Website Refresh

I was inspired by Brad Choate's "Reboot" list to redesign/update his website. I've been wanting to make some updates to (and learn a few things along the way) for a while so I borrowed a few things from Brad's list and added a few of my own. It's a work-in-progress.

Thanks, Dreamhost!

February 21st marks the third year in a row I've had my websites hosted at Dreamhost. Apparently they appreciate my business. I received an email last night with a $30 gift certificate to mark the occassion. Technically they've hosted my websites since late 1997 but I moved my sites briefly in 1999 and again in 2000. I had more of a love/hate relationship with them at the beginning (which is why I switched twice); but the past three years have been great. It's interesting to see how much they've grown, too. I remember when they were just starting out and hosting, a project I was part of at the time in 1997-1998. Five years ago really doesn't feel like five years ago. Or something like that.

I still haven't figured out the problem I'm having with Movable Type. Though I don't think it's really a problem with Movable Type necessarily, moreso a permissions problem with files. I can publish all files through Movable Type just fine except when it gets to the index files. I get this error message: Writing to '/home/susank/' failed: Opening local file '/home/susank/' failed: Permission denied.

I've tried making adjustments to the existing index.html file's permissions but that didn't help. Weird.

Update Jan. 21st @ 11:50pm: The problem is fixed! I had the wrong CGI user associated with

I've moved the homepage from Blogger to Movable Type. There's one small technical detail which I need to figure out so for now, the main page redirects to /log. But you probably wouldn't have noticed that unless I told you.

I'm merging my photo site ( with since I have enough websites as it is. Four is enough. So, if you've got bookmarked or in your blogroll, consider changing the link from capricious to Now it's time for a movie and then Michael and I are going to visit friends who are back in town after living in Florida the past 1.5 years. Not a bad way to spend a birthday evening!
