Setting up this blog

Dreamhost recently started offering quick, automated set-up for WordPress. I decided to try it out. I used their “web panel” to set up this subdomain and then to install WordPress on it. Everything went very smoothly. WordPress appears to be more polished than Moveable Type was the last time I installed or used it in 2002. I have no basis for comparison now, of course. I’m impressed it all went this smoothly. The UI for WordPress seems pretty featureful and straightforward.
