It took a few hours, but I finally converted almost all of my Hemingway site into The Hemingway Blog. It’s in MovableType now and I’m very pleased with the result. I still have to get the dozens (multiple dozens!) of essays on the author into some sort of bloggable format, but that’s just a bunch of find and replacing with good ol’ EditPad.

I’m trying to decide if I want to convert bling (my main page) to MT yet. Ben and Mena say that they will soon add the ability to import GreyMatter comments into an MT blog. But I know I can hack it myself a bit to do this. I just know that if I do it, though, it probably won’t be as pretty as if I wait until they’ve got an “official” way to do it.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
