I’ve had a bit of a quiet time lately. I’ve been attempting to install Movable Type and TextPattern on my iBook locally and it’s been a bit of a trial, particularly in getting MySQL running. Now that Macintosh users are also Unix users the heavy-duty software available for the platform is amazing (even if the easy-GUI side of things may be lacking). The good news (for me) is that I now have a nice development platform. I can try out all sorts of experiments in styles and layouts of blogs etc etc and my experimentation need never be an object of ridicule. At least until I post it to my website, that is.

At some point (probably after I settle on my final choice of blog software and get a new blog up) I’ll write up how I did this.
