The Old and the New

I wish there was a way to link from , say,  my original post on my still reachable Movable Type blog (which is now archive of my present blog on WordPress, into which I have  imported all the prior MT posts …..but  to people who arrive at a particular blog post via the original Movable Type link,  I wish there was a way to link the comment area for that post over to the corresponding post in the WordPress blog.  The WordPress import mechanism receives a Movable Type export file,  and dumps all of the posts and its comments and trackbacks into a new WordPress post,  but the ID’s don’t match,  and so the only possible match would be on title (date would not work since I obviously often post more than once a day).

Since comments on MT broke and seem down for the duration,  I would not want to miss out on any comment that someone might want to make after reading the MT blog post.
