For many years now, the JSW4NET site has been managed with MovableType. If you are watching closely, you will see that as of the date of this post, we have begun to develop a site using WordPress. In general, when we develop any web site from now forward, it will typically be made with WordPress.
It was Ben and Mena, and the zietgiest of a young married couple publishing software, that held a lot of the initial attraction for JSW4NET. That is long gone.
It was replaced by Six Apart which was a US corporation. SixApart subsequently merged with Say Media. Apparently, all Say Media wanted was the TypePad properties. Now, there is a Japanese company that used to be named Six Apart KK that now owns MovableType. (The name of the new company is Six Apart and it is owned by Infocom, a Japanese IT company.)
So, we have moved on too. As we do, we make the following committments to our MovableType users:
- Our hosting platform at KinetixHosting will continue to provide all the necessary elements to run MT.
- If you want to use MT, we will perform a new clean installation of the software on your account at no charge.
- KinetixHosting will attempt to answer questions about the use of Movable Type through standard support channel.
If you need any other Movable Type services, please contact us to discuss your needs.
For fun, we present the following top ten list. It is the chronologically organized list of content management systems used by JSW4NET since 1999:
- Custom written mod_perl web site.
- Note Pad
- Note Pad (Yes, we returned to this briefly after the previous two messes.)
- Sharepoint (Only internally; but this is significant in light of Office 365.)
- MovableType (… and we looked at Melody too.)
