Archives being imported, yep finally

2,669 published articles from 2002-2006 are now integrated into Hammer of Truth. There’s still quite a bit to do import-wise (mostly formatting, dead link removal and cleaning up image code) but feel free to poke around using the handy dandy pagination on the front page or read our very first post, ever. If you come across anything interesting post a link here in the comments.

The comments table is kind of a mess (but totally salvageable), so consider this process officially underway yet incomplete. There’s over 32K comments, wow.

On a better note, our daily readership here at HoT is starting to be off the hook again less than one year later (that’s actually fast, all things considered). We’re obviously not beating LewRockwell or Reason or CNN (yet), but we’re not in the small-timer league either. We never were.


UPDATE: Fuck, there’s an amazing amount of boring editing to be done. Broken images, weird padding on said images, really really deprecated HTML in posts. Give it a few days before you decide whether you want to bitch me out (again). Please. (this is fixed now, I am that good!)

UPDATE (FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FRIED EGGS): 32,695 comments between 2002-2006 imported. Tags are pretty much fucked and will not be imported (it’s good for SEO, but doesn’t replace good writing AMIRITE?). Huzzah, I’m going to go have a beer.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
