Rule 58.01 provides that, unless the court otherwise directs, judgment upon an order of the court for the recovery of money or for costs must be entered forthwith by the court administrator. Entry of judgment may not be delayed for the taxation of costs, and the omission of costs does not affect the finality of the judgment. The judgment in all cases must be entered and signed by the court administrator in the judgment roll; it is this entry that constitutes the entry of the judgment, and the judgment is not effective before such entry.
