I decided to get a box, actually a virtual server over at www.bitshop.com. I’m in the process of getting that all squared away and working, and then I’m going to swing this site over, and hopefully in the process upgrade the blog software and get rid of all the spam on here. My method of getting rid of spam includes all the comments, unfortunately. I can’t efficiently or reliably pick 100 good rows out of 20000 table rows. I think the new version of this blog software actually includes a comment spam reduction widget, and if not, I’m going to home brew something.
The URLs should all stay the same, but, if they don’t, I’ll do my best to either put redirect pages or have IIS issue the redirect codes. Site may be down for a few hours to a day while I get this all done. Stay tuned.
