A snag in the process.....

Well, the moving truck ran off the road.   After finally finding a way to convert the old posts, I ran into a brick wall on the move.  With more than half of the posts converted to the new site, it just stopped working.  Apparently, the conversion method I was using (a plugin for WordPress) was really screwing up the fine folks at the hosting service.  WordPress’s built-in import feature just didn’t work for me.   I don’t know if it’s becuase of the size of the site or what.

So now my account is “suspended” cause I’ve been a bad boy, screwing up their servers.  I put a call in to tech support (that’s how I learned the above), and now we’re exchanging emails trying to get the account unsuspended.  I don’t have any more time to work on this today…… but will be back on it first thing tomorrow.

Stay tuned…..



Just hang in there. I've heard giving birth is painful.

You have a lot of silent admirers out here in cyberville. Your site is my number 2 stop each day (after the news headlines) and I look forward to you finding your new 'home'. But I'm patient, and I know you have a real life too. Good luck, and when you need us all to stop over to the new place for a 'housewarming', just give a shout and we'll be there. (Do we have to BYOB?)

Well - if your going to mess up, mess up big. :) That would be my luck. (Actually, my luck is a blog that no one visits)

Looking forward to your getting back on line.

O Fortune, like the moon of ever changing state, you are always waxing or waning; hateful life now is brutal, now pampers our feelings with its game; poverty, power, it melts them like ice.

Fate, savage and empty, you are a turning wheel, your position is uncertain, your favour is idle and always likely to disappear; covered in shadows and veiled you bear upon me too; now my back is naked through the sport of your wickedness.

The chance of prosperity and of virtue is not now mine; whether willing or not, a man is always liable for Fortune's service. At this hour without delay touch the strings! Because through luck she lays low the brave, all join with me in lamentation!

I thought this process could use a soundtrack.

Take Care,

I don't know what part of the world that you are from Mike Firesmith, or what side of the brain, you use. I do know that you are quite the character and also give me a belly laugh with your antics.

I have my moments, yes.

I think don't think I use any particular part of my brain just.....bits and pieces.

Take Care,

I'm unclear on what host you're using, but I'm with BlueHost and I can't make WordPress work and I even bought the BOOK! ("WordPress For Dummies")

Now my email doesn't work and I never know where I'm going to show up on the internet.

Good luck to you, great blog, I love it!
