Work continues to go on behind the scenes to restore the Notes From The Nat archives - this past week we’ve manually reposted all blog posts from July 2006 and August 2005, complete with updated images and, in some cases, cleaned up text.
It’s a huge job bringing the site back up to speed - we’ve still got about 270 posts in limbo after our previous blog software crashed and burned, and there’s another 50 posts that are in the system but unformatted and thus tough to read - but we’ll keep working at it, bringing the old posts back, one at a time, until we get back to season 2004 when it all began.
But please, if you do have a blog, learn from our experience and make sure you use blogging software that is portable. Moving from Blogger to PostNuke, and then to WordPress, has caused us literally months of work in trying to keep the archives from disappearing, and we still have a long way to go.
That said, we’ll be using the current WordPress software now and into the future. It does what need it to, it’s flexible, it’s upgradeable, it keeps the comment spam away, and seems to be secure and well-supported.
Post-Nuke users take note…
Random YouTube Clip of the Day:
When Ichiro and Daisuke went into pitched battle yesterday for the first time on US soil, the Red Sox pitcher pretty much owned the Mariners legend, with Ichiro going 0-4. But what happened when the two first met, back when Ichiro was 26 and at the height of his powers, and Daisuke was just 18?
A pretty even contest, to be honest.
