05\22\11 Reaching Up and Reaching Out

Hi folks. After many (many) years of coding the site entirely by hand, the site is finally switching over to WordPress!

The main differences that you’ll notice will be (a) you can finally comment on news posts, and (b) you can finally subscribe to this site’s RSS feed using Google Reader (or whichever reader you use). Many (many) of you have asked for this over the years; at least this got finished before Tool’s next album.

It’s a little silly that it’s taken so long to make this change; then again, when the site first started, it was essentially formatted like a blog, and pre-dated the word “blog” by many years.

And back then, there was a clear winner for which Tool song was the favorite: check out the survey we ran back in 1997 to see how much Tool fans’ opinions have changed since fourteen years before Tool Madness. §

    and i’m going to post a comment, not just because they are finally working, but because i have a feeling someone will come along and say “First” if i don’t =)

    Nice work, man. It’s been a pleasure following the site for way too many years now. I can understand taking a long time to enable commenting, because now we have a convenient way to publicly bug you for more updates!

    Seems like you’re both proud of “coding” the site entirely by hand and happy about switching to a content management system. What a tool.

    they’ve both got their ups and downs. the html, php, and css for t.d.n was written by me from the ground up. but now readers can finally post and read comments from others, such as yours.
