On Vacation, At Work
Spent most of today mucking with text patterns, trying to convert my home-rolled files over to the MovableType format.
Right now, I’m using BBEdit and Text Factory to run a series of GREP patterns, doing some find and replaces. After that, I’m using an Applescript that Justin wrote for me, which plucks out the date and copies it into each subsequent entry. I then upload all the files and publish using the MovableType interface.
Lots of trial and error, and a good deal of repetition. But progress is being made.
I’m starting with the 2002 entries. There’s a lot of sloppy code there, but I think I have all of 2002 done. Slowly but surely.
