changing blog platforms

As much as I like WordPress, the trackback (or rather the poor functioning of trackback) is a killer for me.

As much as I like WordPress, the trackback (or rather the poor functioning of trackback) is a killer for me. I don’t want to have to work at getting trackback to work,… especially since it is so easy to use in other forms (Typepad (via MarsEdit), Blogger etc.). I may try setting up b2evolution which seems a little more complicated but also more full featured.

There is one more thing I’d like to try though. I’ll see if trackback works using MarsEdit. No, it doesn’t.

I’ve downloaded b2evolution and it does take some getting used to, but I’ll play with it anyway. Perhaps WP will fix their trackback sooner than later, and yes,… b2e trackback works.

sharing or not

Went in to work today. Still not up to par (me that is). Made a lot of progress with the hosting service. Apparently they had a script for installing WordPress and it worked like a charm.

I haven’t written much on the political front mostly because I don’t want to aggravate myself, but also because I’ve been thinking that I should focus on what positive stuff our side believes in. It seems to me that the two sides are divided by two basic differences in how we view the world. It’s like most of us learned about sharing and looking out for others (especially those less fortunate than ourselves), while others kind of got stuck in the looking out for themselves only. The thing is, looking out for others is not as altruistic as it first seems. Looking out for others means, others are looking out for you. It’s a contract between the individual and the society.
