Neil Turner's Blog

Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002

Blog cloning?

As you may notice I’m posting entries both in the old and new blog. This is because the old one hasn’t been retired yet and because I need some content on the new blog so that I can see what it looks like with a few posts, and thus design around it accordingly. Admittedly I am working with the same design as before – “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” – but there may be little tweaks that need to be made.
I have to say I prefer using MT to post – it actually looks okay in Mozilla, whereas Blogger looks a little goofed up. And I can’t use w.bloggar to post anymore, either :(.
As for progress, so far this main page and the comments pages now use the new (as opposed to default) template, but the archives still look rather boring and plain, so that’ll be my task for this weekend. Which looks to be rather quiet – a number of people in hall are going home for the weekend so I’m going to be lonely :(. I am considerign going across to Manchester on Sunday to see Tom, my mate for I don’t know how many years (14, I think. Which, considering I’m only 18, is a loooong time.). He’s just moved into a house with his girlfriend and a few mates, so it’ll be interesting to see what it’s like.
And in case you don’t know, Mandrake Linux 9.0 was released on Wednesday. I’ll download it when I get home; it looks good. It comes with KDE 3.0.3, Mozilla 1.1, OpenOffice 1.0.1 and a load more besides. And hopefully after a few sessions in the labs here, I’ll actually be able to use it…

  1. Thought you were quiet then remembered that you are on the new site! Why can’t you use w.bloggar for the new site to post with? I used to be able to post to them when I had mt on my laptop ok. I’m waiting for 2.5 to come out before I convert my blog to MT.
