It occurs to me this morning that, while movable type does a great job of keeping file sizes generally low (mostly because it is XHTML transitional) there are still a lot of files it creates, and (hence take up a lot of space) on my server. My first thought was that rendering pages dynamically via some kind of php script or something would cut back dramatically on the file sizes. But I’m not sure google likes to index dynamic pages… I realized that I actually knew next to nothing about this, so I wasted most of the morning reading about various methods of getting the ? out of your URL on dynamic pages. To make a long story short, there’s no way I’m going to actually do this, since it would require pretty much require re-writing movable type, (or at least writing an extensive plugin) but it’s fun to think about.

I’m also thinking about starting a photo blog. That would give me an excuse to carry around my digital camera again.

  1. Make sure you read all the way to the bottom. Two or three methods listed. As for he PHP3 comment, it will work fine on all versions of PHP. Oldie but a goodie I guess.
