Nightmare Is Over

The Hollywood Elsewhere comment-post problem (i.e., Movable Type software blocking readers from posting comments) was fixed around 1 am last night. The problem was caused by a certain fellow’s attempt to create a new HE column called Woman on the Verge, which is still in flatline mode as we speak. Everything this guy did followed normal procedure for setting up a new blog, but he copied aged coding in order to do so and the javascript was accidentally overwritten. But the fault, I’m told, is largely due to Movable Type.

They’re bad people, the Movable Type crew. Trying to communicate with them is slower and less efficient than trying to communicate via Morse code with British solders in India during Rudyard Kipling‘s day. They’re slow, their operation is covered in molasses, and they hide behind walls. Their refusal to install an instant-chat function or charge extra for certain customers to have phone support if needed is intolerable. This is the end of Movable Type. I can’t wait to get rolling with WordPress.

    I thought I’d been banned from commenting before I started! Turns out movable type is just a huge pain in the ass.

    No, Wrath, LexG’s column would be called Man on the Vag.

    Wait….when you move to wordpress, are we all going to have to re-sign up and go through all that rigamaroll again? I don’t care, just curious.

    You mean I won’t have to sign in every time I come here in risk of losing my comment? For months (more like two years), it has looked like I was signed in, even said “Now you can comment”, I’ve typed my comment, hit “submit” and was told I had to sign in, losing what I wrote. Let’s see if this works.

    (Nope, same thing but at least this time when I hit back, my comment was still there)

    The nike air force ones would even have numerous refreshed editions which achieves almost a total of 800 million dollars annually as a revenue account. Our team here in BAK even mentioned once in our postings that Nelly even added something exciting to it by coming up with a song called the Air Force Ones as an expression of his love for the iconic product. Nelly, as a leading hip hop sensation made an amazing influence to the overall popularity standing of the Nike shoe model.
