See, since this here place is just me, and I don’t intend to have more then 2 or three sections, a free MT license will work just fine for this site.
This doesn’t mean my hatred of the MT folks is over. Far from it. I just figured rather then spend a couple weeks creating my own system, I’d throw MT3 up, see how I like it, and then decide if I still need to create my own. But I’ve got enough other projects going on, I really don’t need to be writing yet another CMS system, ya know?
