CHB has been online since October 1, 1994, making it the oldest political news site on the Internet, and the sheer volume of articles from more than a dozen years on the web slows down a lot of content systems. I have been using Movable Type in recent months after several years with Article Manager. Both, however, depend largely on outdated technology (AM on server-side-includes and shtml files; MT on Perl) while WordPress uses php and is a lot faster.
What is not fast, however, is transferring more than 75 gigabytes of legacy files and images.
I need a nap.
