OK, FINE! I WILL SPEND THE HOURS AND HOURS TO MANUALLY MIGRATE ALL MY OLD CRAP OVER!
There. Are you happy?
Actually, I am. Wordpress is waaaay nicer than Drupal, at least for a blog. Using Drupal for a blog was kind of like driving a Jeep – I mean, sure, it’s rugged and capable and even beautiful, but it uses a lot of gas, it’s noisy, and while the ragtop is nice in the Summer it’s just impractical in the winter. Really the only thing that prevented me from moving earlier was the complete lack of Drupal-to-Wordpress migration scripts. Yes, I did in fact have to migrate each and every post by hand.
Oh well – at least now it’s done, and I have a blog I can be proud of again. Welcome to 2001, Drew – the internet now supports fancy things like “photos” and “videos” and “multimedia”! Good thing I managed to lose my camera battery charger in the move. Nice going, Drew. Seriously though – in order for Drupal to have the simple feature “add image to the blog”, you had to resize the image manually, upload it to the FTP site manually, and type in the full path to the image. Now *that* is some serious 2001 stuff right there.
The downside of this whole migration fiasco is that I’ve basically had a mental block against doing any sort of blog updates ever since I committed to the jump. That means that it’s been almost three. frackin’. months. since my last update – and honestly, this has been one of the most action-packed, adventurous, utterly insanely awesome Summers of my life. I don’t even know where to start. I guess it’ll be roughly at where I left off, back in June…
