Earning My Geek Shirt?

I paid the nice folks at Six Apart to install Movable Type for me because I am not skilled or knowledgeable enough to do it myself.

But I have now used the support forums to research and implement a change to my RSS feed (I hope) and also to stop the comments feature from creating a mailto link when people enter their email address but no website (the mailto link was allegedly spam-proofed, but still!). And a few other things.

The morals of this story are that (A) the support forums at movabletype.org are damn fine resources and (B) what I lack in technical knowledge and skills I make up for with willingness to do research and edit my site’s code. And that’s the half of the battle that G.I. Joe didn’t mention.
