I’m a little frustrated with the WordPress conversion, overall I think it’s probably better than movable type, but the primary driver for making the changeover was so that I could use the mobile support that came out for the iPhone. Well, I seem to be running into a fairly common bug in it, in that it doesn’t seem to be able to read my configuration or write to my pages.
I’m quite confident that it is either
a. something I need to tweak, or
b. something that will be fixed soon if it is in fact a bug.
I’ll probably did a little deeper into it tonight to make sure that it isn’t a problem on my end.

Either way, I’m looking forward to being able to shoot photos up here directly from my iPhone….
It should be fun.

WordPress it is….

I’ve been thinking about moving this blog over to movable type due to the more user friendly and extendable nature of it, even though I don’t like the idea of a mysql backend (my old MT install just uses sqlite).  With the useful iphone support and ease of use It just seems like the right thing to do…..and since it’s already pretty much done, here it is.  Note the cheery default color scheme (6/27/2008, it’s probably going to change…..)

Home brewing 101

I spent some time making my Oktoberfest (yeah, I know I’m like months late) and decided it might be fun to try and film it to show others that it’s actually pretty easy and economical to make a 5 gallon batch of home brewed beer. Well, after about an hour and a half of editing and a realization that my camera work for this one really kinda stunk, I was done and had a 30 minute “documentary”. It’s not the greatest and I have found a few places that I don’t like the editing, but it’s already uploaded to Google video (it was too big for YouTube). It’s about 30 minutes long, so if you wanna watch it, be aware of that:

–Edit 4/17/2011, Google video had removed their content so this has been broken up and moved to youtube.
