Alecs' Blog Did you ever go clear..

Old Blog Entries Successfully Recovered

Great thanks to hf_linux, all old data of ~ on 40 has been recovered.

As for my old MT blogs, just export them from the old MT and then import them to the new MT. Works like a charm.

I have disabled comments and trackbacks of the old blogs. Now with the (hopefully good) antispam plugins along with MT3.31, i want to re-enable those feedback functions of old entries. A simple sed will do:

$ sed -e 's/ALLOW PINGS: 0/ALLOW PINGS: 1/' \ -e 's/ALLOW COMMENTS: 0/ALLOW COMMENTS: 1/' old.txt >new.txt

And then import the new one without any errors.

And for the nanoblogs, luckily they have the similar format to MT. So here's a small perl script to do the transfer:

#!/usr/bin/perl -wp

use strict;

my @month = ("", "Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun",
    "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec");

if (m/^DATE: /) {
    my @time = split(' ');
    my $i = 1;
    while ($month[$i] ne $time[2]) {
    $_ = "DATE: $i/$time[3]/$time[6] $time[4]\n";
} elsif (m/^END-----/) {
    $_ = "\n\n--------\n";

Plain text always rox. MT rox, also, indeed.
