Okay y’all, word of warning. I have set up New Hosting Service. That bit’s fine, but I’m going through a bit of a learning curve with the site migration. I am not sure what’s going on, but I’m picking at it to find out. I started this with a throwaway site I’m barely maintaining just to make sure everything works before I start on this one here.

I did learn that when you export a WordPress file, it’s only the text stuff and the blog settings. There is a separate setting for exporting media so MAYBE, when I import that, that means I’ll be importing the images properly. I hope so because I’ve got a shitload of images here, just in this blog itself, and I don’t want to have to go through and upload them all over again. I mean, I will if I have to, but I don’t want to. But I’ll find out presently if I can even get the damn domain name to parse correctly. Apparently there’s a bit of a delay. ARGH.

Point is this site hasn’t been moved yet but if shit gets weird, it’s because I am moving it. And I’m on Pacific Daylight Time now, too, so just be aware.

Stuff will be right as rain eventually though. I’m stubborn that way.
