got dem low-down MT blues

Been a bit quiet aronud here of late. Combination of long hours at work, being a bit under the weather, and starting to dislike the MT interface (and the way it makes me have to work) more and more. I have various bits and slips of paper and notes jammed in the Visor, about how I'd like a blog tool to work and what features I want; I'm just not sure when I'm going to have the time to start coding any of them, or what I'm going to use as test bed blog to try them out.

(This is all Rafe's fault; he linked to some webloging software design specs and got me thinking about the topic; in thinking about the topic, I started considering all the things about MT that rub me the wrong way, and now I'm finding it hard to bring myself to use it. sigh It helps that I have a bunch of other stuff I need to do, most of which isn't very interesting -- so it's more exciting to daydream about -- err, I mean, draft design specifications for -- an idealized weblogging system...)
