I'm Outta Here

Fret ye not.

It is merely a house move.

After almost four years on Blogger I am migrating to Wordpress.

It is all thanks to my good mate who set it all up for me. Last night we transferred all 1200 posts and nearly 20,000 comments successfully so we should be ready to rock and roll.

The new place can be found here so please adjust your blogrolls accordingly. I'll leave this site up for a wee while forever*. Just trying to figure out the Site Feed thingme to automate the whole process.

We hope you like the new gaff. If you have any suggestions-such as fancier furnishings and fittings-please let us know.

Finally we will be able to have a decent, uninterrupted conversation again as I will not moderate comments, apart from the first one.

Ahhh, just like the old days, eh?

See you there!


* Over at the New Ranty Barracks there is a complete list of all 1,200 posts and the comments that they generated. It is much easier to navigate than the archives here, so please have a look.

I have decided to switch comments off here (to save me checking two sites all the time) but you are more than welcome to comment at the new billet.

Hi Captain. I would leave this site up, don't take it down. just disable new comments and have a 'new place' post with link as your last post here. Even though you say you've moved all posts etc it would still be a good fail-safe copy (take another copy anyway just in case).

I was just advised to leave this up because all imaging comes from here.

You are right: it will be good to have a back up.

Ranty, Email login on Wordpress is fine with me.

A permanent sanction was always going to be the end result.

My work is done.

see ya.

Sorry to be nosy but, why is it that most bloggers' are moving to their own sites. Is cost, freedom or 'other'?

I will transfer the blogroll as soon as possible.

Anon, (20:27),

I had to get away from that prick at 19:33. He ruined this blog. But for him, I would have stayed with Blogger.
