MT 3 – Movable Type

Well in my too busy to keep up world, I put off upgrading my MT 2.64 installation to the MT 2.66 version. Now it seems, I am really too late, as it will cost me at least $65 according to the new MT3 licenses.

There has been quite a backlash at MT around these licenses:
MetaFilter and Dive in to Mark.
MT has updated some of the licenses and added a FAQ that helps clarify things.

I never did with this blog what my original intent was. I always planned on adding a second or third blog to my installation, and without upgrading, I can still do that. No errors with MT2.64 will be addressed, and as I see it no way to get to 2.66 without paying, and that won’t be updated either.

So at least for awhile this site will remain MT.
There is a possibility that I will go with WordPress at some point.
[Well that took, lets see — 6 years!] Only time will tell.

I had hoped to turn my main domain, into a blog operated site, and had planned on using MT, but now I probably won’t do that, or at least not use MT.

Still need to put together a photo gallery, which I also had planned to use MT for with the Gallery script. Now I don’t know just how I will do that.

Changes are ahead, what ever way I go. And lack of time to implement them is a constant.

    I’ve just installed a test site with WordPress and it ROCKS! As well, I’ve seen that WordPress plays nicely with Gallery, so there’s a plus. I’ve got a not yet open to the public Gallery site that I’m fully integrating with pMachine (free version). SO – I can probably help if you get stuck somewhere along the way, whatever you decide! (and I have a zip of MT 2.65 if you should ever want it…)

    Hi Bobbi
    I saw your comment about WP at Gaile’s site and just came over to say that I switched to WP a couple of months ago and really like it. After using MT for many years it was difficult to change, I had got very set in my ways! I have MT2.661 upgrade still if you need it.
