WordPress Hates Me

Hmm, this WordPress thing has lots of shiny features which make life easier (like having everything in the database which I was always too lazy to code..), but the theme system is a pain in the ass. Granted, it’s a lot easier than, say, the old IPB we use at GTAF. But, damn, does it really need so many templates? Is there a stripped template somewhere which is simpler than the “classic” theme that I just didn’t notice?

Though it would probably help to RTFM. Oh well. It kinda looks right-ish now anyway. Hopefully everything else will be done by the time Congress is back in session. I’ve mostly been ignoring politics since the election so my brain has a chance to recharge. Something tells me we won’t be getting much sleep for the next two years. If only because we’re too busy laughing at what looks like it will be an epic, slow-motion train wreck of Democratic special interests eating each other. 😛

New Server

Looks like I finally got my own server. Maintaining the code on my old blog was getting boring too, so I decided to scrap it and just install WordPress. Comments and categories got lost along the way since the default RSS importer wouldn’t play along, but hopefully they’ll be easy to convert later. That will come after redoing the theme though.
