After almost 3 months of apparently disappearing, you can finally see why.
The redesign of this site started almost exactly at the same time that the previous version launched. I've ditched Textpattern; although it's a great little app, the lack of documentation and my inexperience with its tags and with PHP made it too difficult for me to manage.
I've jumped on the bandwagon and joined the Movable Type parade. Big props to Stan for letting me bug him when I didn't understand what was going on. Also invaluable to this process was the online Movable Type guide (shout-out to Malcolm for the link).
As long as I don't find anything about Movable Type that holds me up, you can expect to see this site around for a while, complete with lots of Dan Mall goodies.
