Livejournal back

Livejournal has been reintegrated into the site design on the main page, largely because I seem to be spending more time being vocal over there rather than posting more substantative entries here. I'm not quite sure about the front page design yet, but for now I like it.

Archives complete!

As of last night, all of the journal entries I've written since 1998 (with the exception of a few pointless blog entries--i.e., "Hey, I wrote a journal entry, it's here" or "Hey, I changed the site design again") are tucked safely into Movable Type, archived for safekeeping. If you really want to take a walk down memory lane, there are links to each year on the sidebar.

I think my next trick will be to create a 'best of' listing (although, it might be really really short...). If you have any suggestions for that, any entries that you remember fondly, let me know. :)

Archive update

Whew. All of my Geocities archives as well as the entries I posted via the Journaling Script have been converted and posted to the archives here. All that remains are my basic HTML entries from August of 1999 to December of 2001. That might take a while. As it stands now, there are over 1100 entries in Divisions and Precisions, stretching from 1998 to the present.

Also, the sitemap and bio pages are finished.

Archive importing, MT Plugin installed

It started as a whim, but I am slowly but surely converting all of my old archives to Movable Type. As of today, about half my old Geocities entries have been converted to MT, from November 1998 to March 1999. They date back to when I first started keeping an online journal. They are horrific, but amusing. I'd keep going, but I do have a writing deadline this week.

Also, I highly recommend the MT plugin, Blacklist. It's a sort of spam blocker for comments--and if you haven't gotten spam in your MT comments yet, just wait. It's only a matter of time. Blacklist uses whatever phrases and words you specify to keep objectionable comments from being posted. Very easy to install, especially on Dreamhost.

Weblog configuration complete

I've finally moved all of the weblogs off the default Movable Type template. Originally I'd planned to design each weblog separately, but in the end got lazy and did all five on the same basic template:

--Divisions and Precisions -- general, real life meanderings
--La Vie Boheme -- all about writing
--Entertaining the Alien -- book reviews and current reading list
--Dramatic Inevitability -- RPGs and online games
--Stitching and Unstitching -- Cross-stitching and crafts

I amused myself immensely by the different tagline quotes I chose for all five. Link recommendations for each section are more than welcome. The link lists are pretty scant at the moment.

LJ Conversion complete, to-do list

As of right now, I've converted over all my Livejournal archives to Movable Type. That brings my total number of entries (across six blogs and dating back to 2000) to a little over 1500. And I still haven't dealt with my old archive yet. That has entries going back to 1998. Of course, they weren't quite as rapid-fire as the Blogger and LJ entries.

What's left to do? By order of importance (to me):

-Design and configure the reading blog
-Design and configure the gaming blog
-Design and configure the cross-stitching blog
-Do the about me/bio page
-Do the sitemap
-Design professional page
-Figure out how I'm going to handle pre 2001 archives, and do it
-Clean up old, unneeded files

Clearly, this is going to be a long term thing in some cases.

Till Human Voices Wake Us is online

I managed to get another weblog set up, completely with archived Blogger entries converted over. I'm in the process of trying to convert the rest of my archives, but it could be a drawn out process--there's over five years' worth of stuff there!
