Problems with MT

Sorry for the lack of entries over the last few days, it’s been due to a combination of things. First off, New Years meant that the rest of the weekend was basically a lost cause. I’m happy to report I had a good New Years Eve and a lazy Saturday as I tried to recover from the Friday night fun. I did manage to work on my list of top 50 albums of 2004 over the weekend, however, which gets me to my second problem. I’ve been trying to post my top 50 for the last two days to no avail. For some reason (maybe the list is too long?), every time I press save it takes forever and eventually times out with the error “document contains no data.” (If anyone has any recommendations on this problem, please let me know.) I have found, though, that short entries seem to go through fine, so I guess I’ll just keep it short for now. Because of my problems, I have decided to post my entire top 50 in the music section of the site. Go check it out, I worked hard on the list and it includes an MP3 link for nearly all the albums in the top 50. Hope you enjoy that, and in the meantime I’ll keep working on getting Movable Type working better. Thanks for your patience.
