Archives are back

After a long, winding and thorough hunt, I’ve finally managed to locate the archives from my old blogging software. There were encoded in a strange dialect (DasBlog’s XML) so I had to write a little tool to do the conversion to WordPress. The converter is just a bit of C#; If you want it, lemme know.

Along the way, I realized that I needed a better way to exhibit all of these wonderful articles from the past. I don’t really like calendars and most archive pages seem to involve too much paging, so I borrowed a page from Mark Pilgrim’s book and put up one page with everything, separated out by year and month. I rather like it.
