Well, I am about to bite the bullet and upgrade this blog from Movable Type 2.62 (which was current probably like a year and a half ago) to 3.15.

I'm sick and tired of having to delete TrackBack spam by hand and look forward to doing it right from the MT interface itself.

So, if things are wonky around here, you'll know why. Cross your fingers for me. ;-)

Updated: All done! Now to see if anything is funky or doesn't work right. Please leave me a comment if you come across an error.

I had to upgrade my mom's group website last week because old MT 2.62 was not behaving well anymore. Every time they hit "post" while editing an older entry, it would boot them to the login screen. I upgraded to the latest 3.x series without a hitch! The interface looks much happier and there was nothing to fix in the templates. What a relief.

Personally, I've switched to the more hip WordPress. MT's templating system is the major thing that I miss. Ah well.
