Almost converted

I'm almost done with the conversion of this site to new software. The stories, comments, polls and other static content items have all been ported over and, in a number of cases, have had links repaired. I did this by hand to make sure it all got where it needed to be correctly and to find the dead links. I actually enjoyed it as it gave me a chance to go back and re-read things that I wrote way back when. I'm quite certain that I am the only one that would get any enjoyment out of reading my old posts but it is what it is.

I've still got some miscellaneous content blocks to replicate (Quote of the Moment and stuff like that) but that'll be done shortly. I may roll it live before those are done in any case if for no other reason than because I don't want to double post things any more than I have to.

Also, if you are subscribed to the RSS feed, the new one should be and will begin working at my whim (see above). I may or may not have a redirect to it from the old location since it's not my own server and I'm not sure whether I easily have the ability to make such a thing happen.

Re: Almost converted

This code is SO much faster than your old code. It loads "likidy split" for me. --- Thanks, David Pitts<a href=""></a><a href="" title=""></a>

Maybe so, but...

The funny thing about that is that you're not using the new code yet. This code has been in place for a couple months or more now. And once the initial page load is complete (and all of the images from the CSS load) it really is quite fast. That first page load, however, can be agonizingly slow at times. I'm going to launch the new version this evening. --phy

Best laid plans

Well - last night certainly didn't turn out like I had planned and the site didn't get moved. And given the lack of sleep, it probably won't happen before the weekend. We'll see.
