Infrastructure upgrade

UPDATEMediaManager is now working. Watch for reviews and look for ReadListenWatch on the homepage.

I’ve upgraded the software for Acid to the latest Movable Type 3.2 release (read the official announcement). It offers a swag of improvements over earlier versions, including a whizzy new plugin infrastructure. I’ve also moved from the old, default BerkeleyDB to SQLLite. I may well move again to MySQL…

Along with the upgrade, I’ve replaced BookQueueToo with the new MediaManager, also by Byrne Reese. I’m helping with beta testing, and it’s exhibiting some flakiness at the moment (thus no media lists…). One of the new features for MediaManager is the ability to automagically create reviews of media you’ve "consumed" (read seems inappropriate). So, in an act of pure vanity, I will begin offering reviews of books, music and DVDs here from time to time.
