Importing "Joel on Software"

Today I'm going to try to import Joel on Software, which was built with UserLand Manila, into CityDesk. Manila is a wonderful weblogging environment, but it's my software engineer's duty to Eat Our Own Dogfood[1]

The first step is to get a local copy of Frontier running on my laptop, where I will change the manila template to be completely raw. That way when I import all the stories into CityDesk, there won't be any template cruft around them.

OK, the first thing I discovered is that getting Frontier running on my laptop is not so easy.

But I can append ?print-friendly=true to my URLs (in Manila) to remove the templating cruft, which makes importing them easier.
