New Year, new blog!

As previously mentioned I’ve been reworking the weblog software I use here. I’ve switched to Movable Type which is a very sophisticated piece of code which is widely used for blogging. Even Jag uses it so it can’t be all bad.

As yet, I’ve hardly scratched the surface using the features it has, but I intend doing some more digging. The design of this page is pretty much all done using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), which means that I can change layout etc without having to edit the HTML pages. I found a sample template for MT on the Movable Style website, and changed it considerably. I also cleaned up the sidebars, some of which were only really of use to me anyway.

  1. Thanks, Dixon!
    I was impressed by the loading speed too. Comes from a combination of dropping the Moreover feed and using Movable Type which generates static XHTML rather than the old PHP generated blog.

    Glad you like the bling too!
