Meanwhile, I've been spending more time playing with weblog software than actually writing. This is phase two of the project. It's a mirror of Natalie Solent's weblog, copied from her BlogSpot weblog to a Movable Type weblog. I had to modify the Movable Type RPC code but I can now incremementally update an MT weblog from a BlogSpot weblog. I can now set up a script to copy over posts at regular intervals. The benefit is that the archives are always there and one can search them. There are three more phases before I'm actually done (adding comment access to the MT RPC, incremental comment updating, and setting up automatic scripts) but I'm making some progress. But it should be worth it once the actual goal of the project is operational.
