Very well, I'm still missing the .htaccess, just didn't seem to work so I cannot replicate the pretty archives based on post time.
Then the question is, do I bother to repeat the entries from my old weblog? Its a lot of work to do it, and get the posts right. Or do I leave it as-is?
There are a few posts there that are good, very good even, but I might just replace those as static pages from and about myself, rather than anything else.
until then, the blog is somewhat complete, and I can use it. Comments work, woop de hoop, and the template is sorta finished. Still messy, but thats design for you.
