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 Senate Backs Bush on Wiretaps Feds Enlist Race Obsessed La Raza to Help Hire Government Workers Al Gore, Man of the People, Gets Paid Over $1 Million a Day to Sit on Apple’s Board, $125,000 per hour About The Author KateSDA 5 Comments Venomous Kate April 14, 2004 Freedom, indeed. 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.
