    A bunch of stuff from the old still hasn't been transferred over yet, but the main blog is (hopefully) working!

    This new server is actually an Amazon EC2 instance I'm trying out. Yes, is going into the cloud. Will we ever escape it? Who knows?

    Further exciting updates as they come in!

    I think that might have happened after I backed up the database. :)

    Still fiddling with redirection stuff. Subdirectories are hard, let's go shopping!

    Not only subdirectories are hard, but rewriting rules ported from a server where you are now inside a different subdirectory which is actually the same subdirectory but is now the virtual root of a server so it’s not a subdirectory at all but it is because the absolute path is the same...


    Anyway it’s fast and it seems to be working with the old links and URLs. I’m going to be getting rid of my old Drupal-based blog and just porting the old articles to the new blog and putting in redirects. I <i>will</i> import the old PHPBB3 OSY forum at some point as well, because the majority of OSY’s history is on there.
