OK, for better or worse --- this is the end beginnin'

The post import file is uploaded onto munu and I did a couple of attempts to import it yesterday. My dialup crashed after a bit and when I reattempted, it started duplicatin' the posts that had imported prior to the crash. I decided it might be better to do the import on my office cable connection. I spent the rest of the night deletin' all the posts that had imported.

I went back to bed after I posted the last item. I suppose ya'll are aware that the last two days had worn me down extensively, and my body just gave out, I guess. Anyway, I dozed intermittently as I say there, and several items came to mind. My other location is not yet registered on NZB's Ecosystem and when I do so, I will likely find myself back in the lower echelon of the species thereon. Alas, I suppose I will eventually climb back up in the ranks of the pickled pig's feet at some future point as most of ya'll change your links to I suppose I will have to reconfigure my SiteMeter to read from the new location, and although I can add the number of visitors from my current site meter to that meter, the graph won't show that giant Instalanche 10,500 visitor spike I got last August or otherwise allow me to keep track of my previous visitation statistics. Again, so what? It ain't nuthin' 'specially important in the long run of what I really hope to accomplish by bloggin'. There is, however, one thing that does bother me extensively ... that is all those trackbacks to my posts that exist out there on ya'll blogs that could end up pointed to URLs that no longer exist. I am supposin' that I could create a bunch of redirect pages or somethin' to lead people to the new location of those posts, or some other work around. I am still thinkin' on that.

I am still thinkin' and would really appreciate any thoughts and suggestions ya'll might have regardin' these and any other problems ya'll might have regardin' the blog move. But, from this point on, all further bloggin' will be at the other this place: Tiger: Raggin' & Rantin' ... same name, same blogger, same crud, different URL. Change your links, PLEASE!

Actually, you can just drag your sitemeter across to the new site. It doesn't care either way. At least, I don't think it does...

That blasted amber alert keeps making your page jump up and down. Only because I'm using large fonts, but I still want to smack it.

Yes, I found that I could just change the URL for my SiteMeter account, so that seems to be easy enough. As for the problem with the AmberAlert java script, I did not experience any problems even with the largest type on IE 6.0. I also find that thing to be one of east favorite page elements, but the service it provides is something I am behind 100%. If anyone knows how I can resize the scroll box, however, I would appreciate any information on such. ;) I would like to move it to one of the side columns.

Gotcha switched over at my place.

Hey! You lost a few posts in the move!! Where's March 17th & 18th???? They were at the other place this morning....

Yes, and regrettably are probably lost for good as I was very hurriedly deletin' everythin' dealin' with this blog on the other server.

[UPDATE: Well, thanks to findin' the index page was still stuck in my cache, I was able to recreate all the lost posts, but could not retrieve the trackbacks or the comments. I do realize I lost a really good comment by Susie, and I will be cryin' myself to sleep because of the loss.]
