I finally succumbed to wordpress after my scripts got hacked and my posts were displayed from old to new rather than new to old. Rather than spending hours figuring out how to undo the action, I took an hour to upgrade my blog to wordpress.
Not a five-minute install, mind you. Because the b2 script I used was from 2003, it had been outdated for years and the import scripts no longer worked. Not to mention the number of mysql commands I had to execute to get my comments working right.
But here I am, back in the modern age again! Yes, there is a real working rss feed. Yes, I can now do trackbacks and all those modern blog things that go around now.
Even though I heard a great talk by Matt, one of the founders of WordPress, a few weeks ago, I still don’t like the interface. b2 fit my needs. WordPress is now a bloated, fat cousin with too many features. I only need to write, search my posts, and manage my comments. But with time, maybe I’ll be a true convert.
But look! I used a title for my post!
