Moving to Movable Type

After weighing in the pros and cons, it looks like I'll be migrating my blog, and all of it's data to a Movable Type install, rather than a WordPress install? Why? I'm hoping to take some strain off the server by removing the database on the posts.

Honestly, I don't know why blog engines have databases for posts, when static HTML files can be produced rather effortlessly. I understand WP Cache does something similar, but I've had mixed results with that plugin.

Anyway, the blog migration will probably happen sometime this weekend, ready for a new life Monday. Also, I'm hoping that I can preserve date timestamps in the RSS feed, so as to not spam the planets that I currently push to. I'll be testing in a development environment first, to make sure everything goes smooth, not like you care. 🙂

See you on the other side.
