I’ve gone and done it, I installed WordPress. I have an actual modern blog! All the same old content is here, and I’ll be adding the old posts.

Yes, yes, I’ve been seriously lax. It has a lot to do with that Real Job I got a while back. But things have settled in and I’ve started thinking about the website again. I’ve lately been only sewing regular clothes (now four sizes smaller, yay!) which I find mostly boring to talk about. I realize that it’s still a fairly unusual activity these days, but as far as I’m concerned it’s at about the level of blogging what I made for dinner. Yawn.

Stage One of the Great Website Re-Do is complete:

The new server arrived, and while there are a few details to straighten out with my order from the Apple Store (like they sent me the wrong damn operating system version?!) it’s happily running on the internal network while I get it configured to my liking. (Thank you, Developer Seeding.) When this is done I’ll have an actual normal blog. I’m sure re-implementing RSS would be an interesting intellectual exercise, but I’m over it. WordPress, here we come.

Back online, on a new server. New operating system even, as the most reasonably available machine was an old PowerMac G4. There is still some tweaking to do (SpinnySpinny is the only site up at the moment) but things are moving along.

In case some people need reminding, let me help: Do your backups, kids. They’re good for you.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled textile content.

Well, wasn’t that exciting.

After a successful server move this weekend, one of the drives failed. And so did the spare. So now we are running off the system disk, which was already nearly full. SpinnySpinny is back up, but tomorrow it looks like I’m going to Fry’s. Expect some downtime while we get the replacement up and running.

Finally the website is back up. I wrote a few entries while it was down and now I can start putting up new stuff.
