Reading urlgreyhot : Is Movable Type scalable? and then speeding up movabletype I wonder if I’ll have to consider migrating to something like drupal. MT is my third blog tool. I started on blogger, migrated to greymatter for feature (and stability) reasons, and then ended up on MT when greymatter stopped being updated. I’ve been pretty happy with MT until recently as my rebuilds grew longer and longer and died more often. jay helped me make them never die (as well as creating the wonderful mtblacklist) but i wonder– the poor classification, the slowing rebuilds. Maybe it’s time to move ship again.
I have mixed feelings. MT is the tool I have a personal stake in, as I helped with an early version of it by providing user testing as well as beta testing. So I feel it is *my* tool to a degree.
Also, I love the Mt community, especially Brad Choate and Jay Allen, whose constant hacking has taken the tool so far beyond the clever vision of its creators.
On the other hand, it’s just a program. And when your tool no longer meets your needs, you get a new tool.
MT is like my old fiat, which I loved even though it was steadily apparent it was no longer the right vehicle for me.
