Hi Billy,

Being new to rails, honestly, I don’t really know what you mean. Sorry.

MT ouputs a nasty flat text file (extract below) and this is what I
need to parse, I want to get this into the new DB as simply as
possible, I’m happy to lose comments, trackbacks and all that kind of
stuff… the only thing I want is the posts and categories. I’m
starting to worry that I may need to go back to ASP (no, please don’t
make me!!!).

Any Ideas?
