Being a Wikipedian

A few days ago I made an account of Wikipedia to write some articles in Wikipedia—especially Japanese ancient history stuff.

It’s very exciting that I can leave my work in the ever-lasting place of the world. I’m trying to move the text that I’ve written for many years to Wikipedia, because by doing so I can give my knowledge to more people than by keeping it in my own website.

Of course I know Wikipedia isn’t perfect—everybody, even those who are not experts, can write or modify articles and it may proble that Wikipedia’s quality is lower than that of traditional encyclopedias like Britannica. But I don’t care if it’s perfect or not. The point is that everybody has an opportunity to contribute to the world by exchanging his own information.

Movable Type upgraded

I installed Movable Type 4.01 (the latest version) for this blog and had all the templates initialized and archive mappings reconfigured to make them compatible for 4.01. The skins were completely changed and template structures became too complicated to customize each page. I have to learn again.

Movable Typeをアップグレードしますた

私のブログのMovable Typeを4.01にアップグレードしてみました。
管理画面も編集画面もがらっと変わって近代的(?)になりました。
そのあとインストラクションに従ってテンプレートの初期化、アーカイブマッピングの再設定などしてみたら、ページのルックスもがらっと変わってしまいました。
テンプレートの構造も以前とまるっきり変わってて、理解できましぇん。カスタマイズはかなり難しそう……。「HIMEMIKO*WEB」のほうは当分アップグレードしないで今のままにしておこう……。
