Building The Pyramids

So I'm switching over to a Word Press blog. I'm in the process. I decided against just linking to the this blog in the new one. Instead I figured I'd just copy everything over.

Yeah. Great idea.

Well I'm too far into it now to turn back. Turns out the import tool in Word Press doesn't import old style Blogger blogs. I still wasn't worried. I figured it would take me a couple of days to manually copy everything over. I was right it has taken me a couple of days... to copy over 2005. That's not even a full year. So I've only got 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and what there is of 2010 to go. Heh. Oops. I just may get everything swapped over before the Blogger "Death To FTP" deadline.

The absolute best part about this though is that there is some great stuff back in the archives and I get to reread everything. You all make some great comments. Thanks for still being here. :)

Bad News

Blogger is discontinuing FTP updating. This fucks me right over. I've been using FTP to update for EVAR, but apparently I'm a part of only 0.5% of Blogger's total population that uses FTP. That being the case they are discontinuing FTP access to my independent host. I haven't yet found an easy way to to switch all my shiznit over to something else. There may be a few more posts, but after March 6th or so I won't be able to do it the way I've been doing it.

My only concern is copying all of the past bazillion years of stuff over to something new. Haven't figured it out yet. Working on it.

Fuck you Blogger.

I feel a little better now.

I'll feel a lot better when everything is converted over. Hopefully I'll be able to bring all the old posts and comments wherever I end up. Cross your fingers.
