Upgraded to Movable Type 4.3

Managed to upgrade the blog to Movable Type 4.3 (I was running 3.3) without (I think) any disastrous side effects — which is quite remarkable given all the custom plugins I’ve written. (Note to past self: this was a BAD idea).

I’ve started using MarsEdit, which I couldn’t make work before. It turned I had a different password than I expected for the Web Services API. I’ve spent many years thinking MarsEdit wouldn’t work for me because I broke something hacking movable type. idiot++.

I’ve also decided to start using Markdown for posts — we’ll see how long it lasts. (Especially since it turns out that the official version of Markdown doesn’t support footnotes! This was half of the attraction for me, because, footnotes, one needs them).
