Flip der Svitch!

If you’re seeing this entry, then the switch has been thrown, and Eclecticism has successfully transferred over to its new server!

Michael was kind enough to make me an offer I couldn’t refuse (the good kind, not the horse-head-in-the-bed kind), and we got all the details finalized today. I’ve spent the evening transferring things over, and…oh, man, but this is an improvement.

Last time I had to rebuild my weblog, I couldn’t import all of my entries into Movable Type in one swell foop, because the 11 megabytes of text choked my server, and I had to break things down and do them month by month to avoid getting timeouts. Just a little while ago, I tossed my entire backup file — a whopping 13.78 megabyte text file — at the server, and it chewed through the entire thing and imported all my entries in just about thirty seconds.

So, many, many thanks to Michael!

There may be a few odds and ends that aren’t quite right as I finalize everything (for instance, I need to figure out how I’m going to get my del.icio.us bookmarks back into the sidebar as a linklog), but hopefully nothing too troublesome. If you do come across something that’s obviously broken, please feel free to let me know.

Otherwise, assuming all goes well, we should be in far better shape around these parts than we have been in quite a while. Yay!

(Bonus points if you can identify the movie that the above screencapture comes from….)
