Well, I’m back in Blogger mode for the time being. I had MT working but now something appears corrupted. It’s not worth all the trouble right now.
Note: I was running MT for a couple of hours, thanks to a lot of help from Stacy at HostingMatters, who actually got me set up initially despite it not being her job. But somehow a minor Preferences change corrupted the system; I can’t so much as log in to work on it. There’s nothing on the MT forums about it and it appears the only solution is to start from scratch. Any program that unstable isn’t worth using, frankly.
