Jason Levine and the Manila Migration Tool

You are reading this site in this WordPress form partly due to Jason Levine of Q Daily News. He wrote a script to export a Manila site to MovableType format, and has announced that the script is now available. Last June, after burning up the better part of the month in what amounted to a dead-end attempt to export the site using the tools provided by UserLand [read the migration category of posts, from bottom to top], I made progress once I got in touch with Jason. First to MovableType for a brief time, and then to WordPress. (Hey Jason, thanks again!) Exporting my big ol’ behemoth of a site helped to iron out a tweak or two in his script. Which he said he’d be making generally available. Well boy howdy, that day has arrived! No more user lock-in!
