Antiword - Text Processing for Media Mover

Using the Antiword program, Media Mover now has its first text converter. Antiword can take Microsoft doc files and convert them to pdf, ps, and txt files, giving site admins the ability to get rid of those pesky MS files- or at least provide alternate formats.

For sites that have a number of doc files already on the site, Media Mover can batch convert these for you. For sites that want all uploaded files to be in the same format, Antiword gives you a good way to have your users files converted.

Wordpress to Drupal 6

I've used Wordpress on and off for several years to power my rambling about code and work. It has served me well and I think offers some advantages over more robust platforms (mainly that it is a fairly refined tool for blogging) for straightforward tasks like blogging. This being said, wanting to showcase some of my work on Drupal a bit more clearly, having a major data loss last month, and needing to get more acustomed to Drupal 6 have made the proverbial push over the cliff to move to Drupal from Wordpress easier to stomach.
