I finally grew tired of the sub-par experience I had with running WordPress on a windows server. Long ago, I signed up for a wordpress.com blog so that I could use Akismet, so I’ve had this site sitting dormant since then.
Finally various features I’ve been wanting to use are available to me: semantic permalinks (look ma, no query strings!), trackbacks and pingbacks now work, and behind the scenes I can now use the built-in upload feature.
The downside of the move is that I can no longer edit the template at will…but its a trade-off I’m willing to make for now.
I’ve created a script to redirect requests from the old domain to this one…and at some point in time I will also redirect blog.misterdotnet.com over here as well.
