Semi-voluntary blog pause

This blog has been quiet for a while. The reason was that I (rather stupidly) started updating Movable Type the day before going on holiday in Spain – and when it didn’t work, I took a look at the error log and said to myself  "hey, I need a vacation anyway – what an excellent excuse not to blog" and took off.

Incidentally, the error turned out to be that the Perl version my ISP (Verio) had running was too old – despite what they told me. That little caper cost me quite a lot of time and frustration. On the positive side – it wasn’t my fault. And it caused me to install a new FTP client, FileZilla, which is a great improvement on WS_FTP. On the negative side: Upgrading to MT4 (with, reportedly, better spam control) will have to wait until Verio puts its software were its mouth is. Time to migrate to Dreamhost, methinks….

Anyway, I am now officially up and running again. To a grey and rainy Oslo. I could do with about one week more vacation….
