So last week I got a call asking for some help with our scouts.  Apparently the adults talked the older boys into hiking up Timp.  Not being one to turn down an opportunity to camp, I jumped on the chance.

Moving to MT4

If for some reason you haven’t already heard, SixApart has announced that version 4 of their MovableType blogging software is GPL.  This is great news, as it corrects a very nasty previous decision moving away from the GPL, which caused many folks such as myself to move off of it.

So it’s time to go back.  Why?
