Movable Type Upgrading

I always wait a while to upgrade Movable Type (the software I use to publish this site). The wisdom of this approach was borne out when a security fix had to be re-issued because the first fix didn't.

So I am now moved up to Movable Type 2.63. Now that I've heard things about security, I am allowing HTML in comments: only the basic formatting ones and links.

One annoyance that due to my tired state this evening I may not be thinking about right: I installed the SimpleComments plugin. So for instance, when Joshua Kaufman referenced [Or not: his archives have all gone the the way of the 410 error - link removed 03/25/2004] my entry about on his post, that is now included in the Comments section, not in the separate TrackBack section.

However, it is not on my most recent comments section on my home page. I'd like it to be, but it's not cooperating.

Also, I fixed a usability annoyance: the Comment Previewing page now remembers your name and such.

And now, apropos of nothing, I'll end on this Onion story: Bush Offers Taxpayers Another $300 If We Go To War

I appears that Adam is aware about "recent comments" not working properly with SimpleComments. He commented about updating SimpleComments on February 17. Hopefully, we'll see that update soon.
