An old blog breaks down. Stops working. Fails to grant access to even the control panel, not that anyone remembers the username and pissword, anyway. There's bondo in the basement, duct tape in a kitchen junk drawer (no, the other junk drawer; the junkier drunk drawer). And then there's some crappy old untended website with versions galore of Movable Type. Yeah, that same Movable Type from over a decade ago. It's still wheezing around on the internet. Right here! Version 5.2.13. I had to delete a bunch of tags to get it running. Much of it probably doesn't work. Comments? They probably return errors. When a blog is rattling around with fewer effs to give than ever before, well, whatever there is, work with it. It was always enough before. Why not now?
And if this shows up online? Breaktest passed.Posted by Derek Mueller at December 22, 2015 11:15 PM to Invention
