How to piss away goodwill

No, this isn't about Iraq, but about Six Apart's recent announcement that it's turning MT 3.0 into a crippleware version of MT 2.0, and charge huge license fees for basic features.

Oops.

I moved to WordPress a few months ago, and it was the best thing that happened to my blog. I wrote a How To move from Movable Type to WordPress over at my blog, which might be of interest to you.
WordPress lets me do everything MT did, and the support and user community positively rock!

Wow! WordPress looks pretty

Wow! WordPress looks pretty neat. I might have to consider switching my blog from pyblosxom to WP, once I have more time to look into it.
