Moving servers!

Just a quick note to say that I'll be moving servers over the next few days. I've outgrown my previous hosting service. Too many readers; too much traffic. Not a bad problem to have, but it does mean that there will be a short period where the site is down. I apologise for this. It's called DNS server migration, and there's no way around it.

I mean this in a helpful way but there isn't any reason that you need to suffer downtime with a server move.

If you get everything set up on the new server before making any DNS changes then your visitors will just see either the old server or the new one until it all settles down.

Fraser, good point - but some things can only be configured once the change has been made.

Well, you can get around those by monkeying with the localhosts file

It all seems to have gone very smoothly with no down time, and now I've installed wordpress and will start playing with that.
