Disney World Report

May 19, 2004

Well I'm back from Disney World. It was a much more pleasant experience than August 2003 which was muggy, hot, and long lines at the attractions.

This time my wife and I did our homework. We got to the parks at the opening (instead of sleeping in late), used the FastPass system efficiently this time around, and were able to cover an entire park by 1:30pm each day and then go back to the hotel and relax by the pool.

MovableType Trackback on Microsoft Windows IIS gives 404 error SOLVED!

May 13, 2004

I'm running MovableType on a Windows 2000 IIS server and noticed Trackback was giving 404 errors for Trackback urls such as

Most MT users use Apache running on a Linux box and MT is only "unofficially" supported on Windows IIS --- if you know where to look. I had to install ActiveState's Perl on the IIS server along with a database engine and a few other tricks.

In any event, I spent the latter half of yesterday after returning from Disney trying to get the Trackback feature to work. I found lots of other Windows IIS MovableType users experiencing the same problem.

Disney World vacation

May 3, 2004

Well, I'm off to Disney World in a couple of days. I leave on Tuesday and will be back the following Wednesday. I'll be packing some serious gadgetry for my trip, including the latest version of Destinator 3.0 GPS software for the iPaq (image above), Destinator GPS adaptor (powered via cigarette lighter) to use with the rental car, a laptop, a CompactFlash TeleType GPS card, one 512MB CF card, one 256MB CF card, a cell phone, and Microsoft Pocket Streets.

I like Microsoft Pocket Streets which comes included with MapPoint 2004, Streets & Trips 2004 and AutoRoute 2004.
