Damn that’s a fast move… Of course permalinks and RSS feeds are all FUBAR, but freedom has a price… Sloganators - You're Famous Air America loses major markets Related Posts Air America Missing Payrolls?

Can you believe there is no lag time between when I press “Publish” and when a post appears on the page? No rebuilding, no waiting endlessly for the “ping” screen. Nada. Zip. I hate to sound like a commercial (particularly one I hate) but… I’m lovin’ it! Venomous Kate April 14, 2004 Oh, and the import process only took 90 seconds. Installation to complete import was 5 minutes. Hell, that’s faster than some folks’ romantic encounters. Jim April 14, 2004 My romantic encounters are way faster than that. No, wait. Strike that – reverse it. Jay Solo April 14, 2004 We went with pMachine on the new blog rather than “drink the Kool-Aid” of the MT cult in which cracks seem to be showing. I could never understand the lengthy rebuild process. Nor could I understand the slavish devotion to the product. Mark J April 14, 2004 I also have my MT blog being mirrored and run by WordPress in the background. I can attest to the speediness of the import process. I do it about once a week to bring the WordPress blog up to speed, and it literally takes 10 seconds. The great thing is that it doesn’t re-import any entries it has already imported! The only thing that is seriously holding me back is the lack of a decent Textile 2 filter. I’m sorry, but Brad Choate improved upon Dean Allen’s Textile so much that I’m not willing to go back. In the meantime, I’ve made a MT template that gives output just like MT’s export feature, except that it processes any Textile markup first, so WordPress doesn’t choke on it.
