the hiatus, and the pending move. . . .

I've not been posting on here because I've been using Safari 3.0 Beta, and it doesn't play nice with Blogger. However, after a near-fatal hard drive failure on my MacBook (long story, the gist of it is that Oso and the iPhone saved my ass), I'm back on Safari 2.0.4.

However, I wanna get the hell outta Blogger and put this blog where it belongs, somewhere on defendini.com. Nothing against Blogger, mind you. It's been good for getting my feet wet, but I think that it's time I geeked out properly and learned how to install and manage something like Moveable Type on my web server. I mean, that's what it's there for, no? Besides, I think my personal website needs to move away from a strictly portfolio-type site, and into something more well-rounded.

Before anyone asks, I have been playing around with the new iWeb, but even though it lets you publish to your own domain, you actually need to set up .Mac as your host and transfer your domain name to their hosting. Don't know 'bout that just yet. Plus, it doens't look like iWeb/.Mac offers truly powerful blog managing tools (I could be wrong, but I don't think so. Still doing research).

Anyway, It's been an eventful month and a half since the last post. Maybe I'll fill you all in on them while I figure out this move.
