ok. now we know i love Movable Type, right? well. well. last night i installed this PHP/MySQL weblogging software called b2. it’s the one davezilla uses. i actually did finally get it installed after a lengthy struggle. but i could not login. and i was tired. and it was like three or something, so i went to bed. had a dream that dave barry’s wife was pregnant. and i was thinking, my god he’ll be 85 when that kid graduates high school. apparently i can’t do math in my dreams. he’d only be like seventy-something.
anyway where was i? oh right. so i had this humongous MySQL error so i figured i should go back and read the instructions. nothing about that there. so i went to the boards and surfed the myriad ‘login error’ posts and lo and behold. my server does not support the md5() command! it was a simple edit that i was able to edit and… it worked! it freakin’ worked!
at this point i leapt up from my chair and danced around the kitchen. my son was understandably concerned, and urged me to check out the power rangers site he was surfing instead, since whatever i was doing had me acting so psycho.
i had to take a little walk around the house to catch my breath. i’m still trembling just a little. oh man. that was good.
anyway, plans on world domination now include a MySQL database.
