I’ve been experimenting with MT4, and have in fact imported 5 years of blog entries from the indie software created by my former student, Will Gayther. I got used to the particular rhythms of Will’s software, which was very fast and configurable. But I got tired of having to fight the spammers on two different fronts… so I’m throwing my lot in with MT for the time being. MT4 was just released, though I’ve been playing with the beta for a while.
I’m used to sub-second responses to almost every button in my old blog. This one has a rich-text editor, which will probably encourage me to start using bold keywords again. I think it’s going to be a lot easier to include images, too. We’ll see how it goes.
