And it begins

I’m sure most of you non-geek types are sick of reading about this whole transition by now, so I’ll try to keep this short and not over fill it with geekspeak. The vast majority (I’d estimate 85% or better) of the DNS servers have gotten my change and the transfer apparently happened with my ISP while I was sleeping. The good news is that it was a very smooth transfer. When I went to bed, was showing old site and when I woke up, I immediately went to and was presented with this shiny new site, now running WordPress 1.0. Following conventional software development version schemes, I’m currently running this as v1.3 while I iron out all my wrinkles and clean up the quirks.

The two things I’m really excited about today are both picture related. One, my mobile page will now be hosted on my site, at least most of it will be. Check this out and see for yourself. Second, I’m planning on dropping the ball on my whole new picture gallery at midnight tonight if all goes as well. All the albums are generated and I just have to index them now. I’m still hoping someday to create some PHP scripts to do all that for me, but a hardcoded backend will do for now.

Finally, I’ve added a counter to this page, the home page, and the new pics page will have one as well. I REALLY want to HEAR FROM YOU what you think about the site so far. Most changes are minor, but I did streamline this blog a bit when I upgraded WordPress versions. Most importantly, please please please please contact me by whatever means you choose if you find something thats broken. I’ve done my best to get everything here and operational, but my feelings won’t be hurt if you discover something.
