Hey, where's the dope man?

I bet you'd be expecting more stuff in this category, right? Well, I'm just getting started with the new content management software, and all the entries from 2002 to 2007 were not categorized in the previous publishing system—they had to be imported in this one "as-is". They're all regrouped in the "Legacy" category though.

Looks like the advanced search is your friend, if you fancy rummaging through that mess.

Vous pensiez en trouver plus dans cette catégorie, pas vrai ? Je démarre seulement avec le nouveau logiciel de gestion de contenu, et tous les posts de 2002 à 2007 n'étaient pas catégorisés dans le précédent système de publication—ils ont été importés de même et sont désormais regroupés dans la catégorie "Legacy".

On dirait que la recherche avancée est votre meilleure amie, si vous voulez fouiller dans ce foutoir là.
