Hello world!

This was the initial WordPress post. I renumbered it, and followed the instructions at Dr. Bacchus’ Journal which I found via Carthik’s Blog to import my old MT posts. (Note: You can’t just add ID anywhere, it must not be before the author line).

A quick poke with .htaccess make all my old url’s work, and life is happy. .htaccess:
RewriteRule ^archives/([0-9]{4})_([0-9]{2}).html /?m=$1$2 [R=301]
RewriteRule ^archives/0*(.*?).html /?p=$1 [R=301]
RewriteRule ^index.rdf$ /wp-rss2.php [R=301]

(note the lack of ^/archives and the use of ^archives – much like John points out. Also I have chosen to go with permanent redirects rather than using passthrough)
