Welcome to the shiny new Minimum Safe Distance, powered by Posterous.
I’ve been increasingly annoyed with Tumblr — it is constantly going down, the html editing tools just don’t fucking work, and it’s been like that for ages with no sign of improvement. Oh but hey, they have a funny new picture for their “Our Server Is Down” page! Look, it has cute little monsters, and they’re — ha! ha! ha! — they’re eating the servers!
See that? That was the last straw. There it went!
I am liking this shiny new Posterous thing, though. It converted the whole Tumblr site in minutes, seems to have set everything up beautifully, I like the new visual theme a lot, and the editing and posting tools seem way slick. Plus it has integrated comments instead of having to deal with whateverthefuck I had to use on the Tumblr. Which means that comments on all the old posts are lost, but… oh well. We’ll make some new comments, right gang?
I might, if I get really bored industrious, even go back and add tags for all the old posts. It seems pretty simple! Remember the “tags under construction” in the sidebar in Tumblr? That was because it required some crazy bullshit I don’t even remember or care to go look up.
Anyway: the blog is dead! Long live the blog!
