Moveable Type update: cool trick

I’ve spent more time messing around with Moveable Type. It’s not only a lot less confusing than Radio, it’s also much better-documented. I already feel at home with it and I’m messing around with the templates. The templates in Radio still baffle me from time to time.
Also, I’ve rebuilt the entire site dozens of times today. I can rebuild the site in seconds, because the MT software is on the server and I don’t have to upload dozens of pages each time I rebuild.
Here’s something cool: I’ve added a list of my most recent postings on MediaSavvy to the navigation bar. All I had to do was create another template (something I couldn’t do with Radio), had MT save it to the home directory (ditto), and insert it into the nav bar with a server-side include. This is fun.
