Added “On This Day” Plug-In

I finally finished installing the pretty neat “On This Day” plug-in for Movable Type by Brad Choate. The plug-in itself was really easy to install, but I had trouble getting this main index to automatically rebuild itself every day so that it would always be up-to-date. I ended up using the “MT-Rebuild” script by Timothy Appnel. Thanks to some help on the MT Forums, I was able to get that to work, upon which I had to figure out the “crontab” command so that it would happen automatically. Luckily my host uses cPanelX, which has graphic controls over that function.
Anyway, the “On This Day” section is all set and is towards the bottom of the right column on this page. It’ll probably make me even more sentimental about my past.
