Changing Weblog Software is Drudge Work

I just finished moving the Drudge Retort from Movable Type to Wordzilla, my PHP/MySQL software that runs Workbench, giving all 14,400 weblog entries and 233,000 user comments a new home. The project took 10 days, around eight more than I expected.

The Retort is emulating Daily Kos by giving site visitors the tools to create their own blogs. I'm going to choose interesting user blog entries for the main page and home page to run alongside my own blog entries -- I've always wanted to give the kids a chance to drive the family car.

There are 270 users who've written blog entries. One of the most active is by Niceville, a relentless contributor whose politics lie to the right of Alan Keyes, even though the Retort leans left. User blogs support visitor comments, RSS feeds, page caching, membership, and ping notification. Anyone who wants to try it out can join the site and begin blogging.

From now on, I'll be multiplying all project time estimates by five. My next book, an irreverent beginner's title on Java 2 version 1.4, will be completed in November 2007. Pre-order it today.


Why does The Retort get all the love?

I am a Crueller. Hath not a Crueller eyes? Hath not a Crueller hands, keyboards, monitors, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same links, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same viruses, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Retorter is? If you prick us do we not bleed? If you troll us do we not laugh at you not with you? If you asshat us do we not try harder? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. If a Crueller wrong a Retorter, what is his humility? Revenge. If a Retorter wrong a Crueller, what should his sufferance be by Retorter example? Why, revenge. The villainy you teach me I will execute, and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction.

Every time someone calls himself a crueller, it makes me think of these.

Cruel.Com will be undergoing the same upgrade. I did the Retort first because its users were trying to give each other viruses through web links. The malicious wheel gets the grease.

Scotty, that was beautiful, man.

I almost cried.

And may I say that your Elizabethan English is almost note-perfect.

And that picture did make me cry. I haven't had breakfast, yet.

You guys have got me paranoid. I see a hidden subtext everywhere now. Why did you do this to me?

You're on my turf, Jack. I thought we settled that this morning.

Here's five bucks, go get us some crullers and coffee.

And remember who the boss is around here.

I was wondering if one of you kind gentlemen could help me? My cat Thaddeus is stuck up in a tree.

Could one of you please rescue him?

I'll take this one, gents.

I'm sorry, ma'am, but that's one for the local authorities.

That cat is well known for his malicious escapades.

Well, I think you gentlemen are just plain mean.

None of you men will help this lady get her poor little fuzzy kitty?

That's shameful.

Ma'am, if you knew that mongrel fuzzball the way we do, you might feel differently.
