I would like to tell you its GREAT… but its not.

MT 5.1 supports modern versions of IE (ummm not really), and then they make death jokes about a browser? (I didn’t even get the joke.) It confirms my opinion of Six Apart as unprofessional, and I don’t really want to be associated with that.

And Melody… which I was really prepared to like… wont work unless I build my own … Read the rest

The three (?) faces of MT4

The latest version of Movable Type, MT4, comes in three distinct flavors, plus an enterprise version. Since I work with small businesses, and individuals, I thought I would take a minute to go over the various features and license terms as I understand them.

This time, its official
