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.

Thanks for the tip! I'd been banning IP's and deleting... certain ads... just realized I couldn't tell you what kind, or I'd get blocked. ;)
