Static Pages

Ugly CritterScripting News: "But not this blog post if I have any say about it. It's stored as a static file on a Windows XP server running Apache. It could just as easily be stored on a Linux machine running anything. Or even an iPod or iPhone. Text files are the ultimate in stability. The same text file you could read on a mainframe 40 years ago could be read on a netbook today. " - I've said it before, I'll say it again, I'd like to switch publishing systems but I can't publish static HTML from many of them. I share this idea with Dave, no matter how arcane it may seem. My static HTML pages are super easy to backup and move from server to server and if I switch to a new publishing system, it doesn't matter. I don't have a desire to pull those static pages into the new system, they'll stay just where they are, in their current form. No fuss, no muss.

So, I think Blogger will continue to serve my weblogging needs.
