Going live with Blogger

Okay, so I had been using the blog in a sub-directory on my site but the intention was that once I had ironed out any problems that I would switch it to be my main index page. Since I ended up not having many problems with getting the template worked out (once I found out the syntax to use), I've decided to migrate it over.

The other good news is that I think I've figured out a hack to get my older posts (prior to 1999) into the blog. Basically, I'll just copy the code for the other archives and make my own static page for those older blog items and tack it on to the bottom of the archives listing. It's a bit of a hack but it should work no problem. Before I do that though, I'm going to take a look at what I have from back in 1998 and see if it's even worth doing.

The other thing I'm really looking at doing is migrating my "development" system back into my normal main site. This is all being done on my "dev" site which is just www.tildefrugal.cjb.net. My actual doman www.tildefrugal.net hasn't been updated in ages. On the one hand, porting over the dev work will be easy. On the other hand, I've got a ton of half updated stuff and broken links on the dev site that needs updating and I really need to get off my ass and start finishing off the work. I'm also contemplating moving my domain over to my linux box to save on hosting but that would be even more involved.
