Website Status Updates

Man - this is a lot of hard work, everyone. (Well, maybe not that hard, but it is extremely time consuming.

I've been busy moving each and everyone's website to my local harddrive so that I can re-upload it to the new goober-server. Phpwebhosting sucks so bad and requires constant attention due to time outs and who knows what. That means moving over 4 gigs of data has taken me all weekend.

And then in the mean time, apparently, the new server had a bad drive in it. So the host folks have set me up with a replacement, but it means I didn't really get a chance to do anything with it until yesterday. Then it's the re-partitioning, re-installing, upgrading, setting up the user accounts, configuring domains, ftp-ing like mad and debugging. It's mostly done, and believe you me, I've learned a whole helluva lot. Like shell access to chmod entire album directories, so gallery plays nice with the new sites.

Case in point, my own site is now using the latest Gallery 2.0. It didn't transfer nicely, so I'll probably wait until the official release that's due in the next few days. Why do all that work twice. The photo albums will be back. No worries.
