Over the last week I have been working on getting all of my old data over to WordPress, a very handy dandy blogging tool that has many awesome features. I don’t really feel like coding my own stuff for the blog anymore due to lack of time, and also I feel that I’ve got a good handle on PHP/MySQL which was one of my original purposes for starting the blog back in 2004. It was kind of a pain to get all of the entries from my old hand coded database tables to the WordPress tables, but I used my elite SQL skills to make it happen. I actually designed my system a lot like how WordPress does things, which encouraged me that I did some things correctly at least 🙂 Right now I am using a theme called ‘K2’ which I am going to mod more to my liking. It’s not a blog unless it’s personal! Commenting should work, and I need to add links to my gallery and what not.
