Things are a tiny bit better. Now I have all the files uploaded, but there seems to be no way to link them to this new version of Movable Type I have. I still have no access to the files in such a way that I could export them into this new system, which would solve that particular problem. And I still can’t access my old templates, so the current scheme that is up is plain and, well, sucks. Grrr. It will look different after my return from up north (or during, if I find a Kinko’s or an available computer).
The work continues. If anyone is an MT expert and a generous, kind person, I could use some serious advice. And if anyone knows how to reach the administrator of Bloghosts, please let me know.
