Countdown to the end
I have completed my own personal Blogspot Exodus! And I did it all on my own! The site is generally up now and useable. And it only took me 13 hours! Yes, for 13 straight hours I sat here and typed, cursed, spat, pounded, screamed. I beat Movable Type!

My domain ( will be registered when Verve Hosting receives my money-order. I estimate it will take about a week before it's fully registered. So alas, this is the last week of Blogspot. It's kind of sad, really. I've already made a couple posts on Movable Type and my God, it's so fucking awesome I can barely bring myself to use this crappy thing we call Blogger anymore. But I'll try; I'll try to keep up my regular posting routine for this final week. I do owe Blogger gratitude. It was with this service that I really learned what it is to be a blogger. And that's what I am, and will always be: a blogger.

Note: An advantage of this week-long wait for a domain name is that I have time to transfer all my posts from the Blogspot blog and my old Blurty blog to my new Movable Type blog (whew, say that 10 times fast). I also need some time to get my "individual post" pages looking up to par.

For what it's worth, here is a link to the temporary IP address I was given. I have no idea if it'll even work for anyone but me, but I'd say there's a good chance it will. Enjoy. I know I am.
