Cruft-free URLs in Movable Type [diveintomark]

How to recognize a Weblog tool by its permalinks

Been reading these articles about reducing cruft, or unnecessary info, in urls. Now, my permanent urls of the form already were quite short, but then I got to thinking: do I really need that obvious /entry bit in there? So I wrote an .htaccess rule to enable permalinks of the amazingly compact form, which is now the default (the old syntax still works as well, of course).
