A New Year and a New Blog


Yes, you're in the right place. I've decided to update the look of my blog and give it a name (Windley's Enterprise Computing Weblog was too hard to refer to). I choose the name "technometria." Technometry is the "measure of a skill or art" and coined by William Ames in the 17th century. As Ames used it, technometria meant the study of the theory of the interrelation of the arts and sciences. For a fuller discussion of my choice, see Why Technometria.

I decided to move to Movabletype from Radio. My reasons for switching from Radio were many. I was quite happy with it back in the day, when I thought it was going somewhere, but lately its seemed stagnent. Add to that daily frustrations with the Radio client on OS X and I finally decided to make the switch. It wasn't easy, which is why I'd been putting it off so long.

My reasons for switching to Movabletype were pretty simple. I'd been using it for other blogs for over a year and liked it. There's good support and a community of tool builders. Furthermore, its written in Perl and I'm a Perl hacker.

I've written up a fairly detailed description of what I did if you're interested in reading the details.

This has been about a three day job, so I'm glad to have it done. I'm sure I've missed some things. If you notice something broken, please send me a note and let me know. I don't expect this to be the final interation on the overall style, but it was what this nerd could do one his own. I'll be making more changes in the neat future.
