Moving the Blog

It’s well past due, but the time has come for me to move this blog to something with a little better performance. I have hosted it on my own Linux box since 2002, and it was an old piece of scrap then. I had a few choices. I could have bought a beefier server to install it on, and have come close a few time. But, even if I don’t buy top of the line, that’s a few hundred dollars that don’t go towards miniatures, so, you know, that’s a negative. I could have hosted a virtual server on our family’s more modern Windows XP machine, but I think that’s going to be more trouble than it’s worth, plus I’m still hosting it out of my house. I could pay for a hosting service on the Internet (and still might), but right now the easiest option seems to simply move the blog content to a new service. So that’s what I’m going to do. The new home will be (currently working to move it over), but don’t change your links just yet. It may still move somewhere else, but I will always be pointing at the current location. The gallery will reside on the old server at for a while longer…I’m not seeing an easy way to move my large image gallery easily while correcting all the old links in all the old blog entries. But, I may work on it over the next few weeks and see what I can come up with.

    I liked your new blog better when Mik’s Minis was the only thing on the blog roll…
