Upgrade to Movable Type 3.2 complete...well mostly

Ok guys I'm sorry but I have to crow, I'm pretty proud of myself for pulling this off. 

You see before I ever decided to try and do the upgrade I had a multi-level backup plan (and lots of physical backups as well) so I could dig myself out if I made a complete mess of it.  I am not a systems administrator nor am I all that comfortable with programming in anything remotely resembling a programming language.  I've taken lots of programming classes over the years but I basically suck at them.  I do ok in HTML with the help of reference books but it's a markup language not a programming language.

So the point here is I got the upgrade installed I did have to send in one support ticket to SixApart and their answer did get me thinking though it didn't solve any of the problems.  Oh and I did have Elijah to bitch at and cry on his shoulder but he's not an MT guy so he couldn't answer either.

Well so with a couple of pointers from the SixApart folks and some diligent searching and examining on my part the blog is now running on MT 3.2.  I'm pretty proud of myself...not to bad for 18 hours work.

I just got my Master's from Informatics and am starting my PhD at UCLA shortly. I have been keeping up with your blog, and find many of posts very helpful (especially to my academic career), so I want to say thanks!

Also, I am a pretty saavy programmer, so if you need any help with that in the future please let me know. Also, if you are ever going to upgrade in the future I would recommend WordPress, its VERY easy to install and update.

Keep on posting!
