WTF did this POS software from Userland delete my stylesheet from the server?

This is the sort of lossage that makes Radio inappropriate for the vast bulk of users.

So I went and installed MoveableType on one of the systems here, just to get the feel of it. The installation could be automated fairly simply through CPAN and some glue, if you have access to a shell account on the target webserver, or if you're installing on localhost. But the instructions assume you're doing everything over FTP.

In any case, it doesn't yet suit our needs, from both a licensing perspective and a usability perspective. I'd like to see MT available for multiple users, not unlike Blogger, but the licensing currently prohibits that. If we permit CGIs for everybody, then I'll have to see about providing it as an option, to at least simplify installation.

Looking for a macro in Radio to return the date without punctuation, like so: 20020926.

I'm also wondering why Radio all of a sudden doesn't think that mySubscriptions.opml is an OPML file. It's the program responsible for creating the file.
