Yah! It turns out bradlauster.com is listed on the Movable Type homepage. Since not many people read this site, you’ve probably come from movabletype.org. Welcome!

As you can see, this is a very basic weblog based on the template that comes with Movable Type. I started hand-updating this site back in 2000 and later switched to Greymatter when it came out. I’ve never really used Blogger because I’ve always wanted a system that would run on the same box that served my site.

Since I’m on the subject of hosting (sort of), I should mention that Hurrah.com hosts my site. Hurrah’s admin, David Elkins, is a super nice guy and is great about supporting my needs. When I needed the HTML::Template and Image::Size Perl modules installed to run Movable Type, he had it done in about two minutes. If you’re looking for a host for your domain, I highly recommend Hurrah. Be sure to tell David I sent ya. Ok – no more shameless plugs, I promise!

The only real changes I’ve made to the templates are the link colors and the addition of that green header. I also pulled out the embedded stylesheets from each of templates and created a single linked stylesheet that I can update through Movable Type. I documented how to use Movable Type to manage your stylesheets on the Movable Type support forum.

I’ve also got another Movable Type ‘blog, that I built for my family, over at theCulvers.net. It’s basically the same design as this site and runs from the same installation of Movable Type.

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment and a link to your site – it’ll be cool to find out who’s been here.
