What a weekend...

This is going to bore the pants of the majority of people here but feck ya's I had a shit weekend and I want to spread the shitness.

I decided in a moment of stupidity to update the software that I use for my blog...

AND i hear you all shout.

It was a pain in the arse to upgrade.

First off Sixapart in all their wisdom decided to get rid of the very database they have been using since day 1, to enable everyone to only use mysql databases so that meant converting my old style DB to the new one, setting up Mysql, setting up a database to use, Piss easy I thought.

2 days later and much searching of the net I found out how to do this. So I got that done and thought happy happy days I will soon be a movabletype 4 user, oh god no.

Logged into my blog to complete the upgrade only to find out that I could not do this, when I pressed the "upgrade now" button I got one of my 404 error pages. I started to pull my hair out, then cut it down to a blade 4 to prevent me going bald. A few hours later I decided to delete a load of plugins on the off chance it would make a difference. It did and now the upgrade is complete.

Movabletype is a head fuck to get around at the best of times and the upgrade has some amazing new features, my only issue is that it is totally different then what I have used for the past 3 years, consider it moving from windows to mac its very different. Tonight I hope to repost on my blog but I think the way I have blogged the past three years is about to change, wish me luck!


  1. You are a complete nerd, I didn't understand ANY of that. Dya not just blog by tapping away on the little keys with letters on em!? I think you're trying to make things more complicated than they need be!
