I just finished installing Movable Type 4!

I’ve finally migrated the site to a new web host and upgraded to Movable Type Open Source 4.21. I’ve always intended this next server move to be the impetus for a reboot of the site, and I’m very much a start-from-scratch kind of person, so things will be very raw and bare-bones and default-y for a bit. This presents me with an opportunity to brush up on my Movable Type templating skills, and rethink and clean up various aspects of HNBP’s back and frontend architecture. For now please bear with the mess and tell me if you see anything that needs fixing.

Actually, you know what, don’t tell me. I know and I’m on it.

Just for posterity and amusement, I’ll keep MT’s default first-post text and comment around:

Welcome to my new blog powered by Movable Type. This is the first post on my blog and was created for me automatically when I finished the installation process. But that is ok, because I will soon be creating posts of my own!

    Movable Type also created a comment for me as well so that I could see what a comment will look like on my blog once people start submitting comments on all the posts I will write.
