One of the things I get at pair that I never had before was a decent managed web hosting platform, with CGI, PHP, and other goodies. So now I’ve moved away from Blogger and set up Movable Type. While Blogger is great, it just doesn’t provide the same flexiblity as MT does, particularly when it comes to advanced features.
One of the best things about this new setup is that I can also create subdomains of ebrahim.org, which I wasn’t able to do before. I’m excited about this. I know most of you who have been with decent web hosting services have been able to do this for a long time now; but what can I say? NSI sucks.
In the meantime, enjoy the new MT-powered blog. Now you no longer need to register in order to comment with a name! The only one thing I wasn’t able to do was import comments from Blogger. If anyone knows of a good way to do this, please let me know.
Right now I’m still pretty much using the MT defaults, with a few minor additions and changes to the templates. Sooner or later the blog will get more pretty as I customise things further. Bear with me while that happens. 🙂
