Recipe for getting your old Drupal export XML into WordPress:

  1. Wait a year and a half.
  2. Get out the XSLT and write a transform to get the nodes into RSS 2.0.
  3. Get out the PHP to turn the Drupal Unix timestamps into RSS valid timestamps and write out the results.
  4. Import the RSS 2.0 into WordPress.
  5. Remove dupes because you imported some scraps from other backups.
  6. Serve.

This blog is now at 100% for historical content, I believe — it should now include the contents of all the old blogs. If it’s missing anything, yell at me and I’ll go looking. Hooray completeness!

In other news, I finished building my big rig, and I’ve eaten barbecue. So it’s been a pretty full day.
