Change is On the Way

I thought I had mentioned this here before, but I don't think I did now that I'm looking:

The Weirding is moving. The URL will be the same, but the IP address is different. That may not mean much to you, but I think you will need to update your bookmarks - not just for The OddBlog but also for anything else you have saved across the site.

While I am planning to release a whole lot of new material, with the blogs and personal issues I have to contend with right now (including court and moving), I don't know how soon that will happen. However, as far as the blogs go, everything should be fine. As far as I know (and I haven't spoken to anyone yet, but I will next week), everything will just kind of move on its own; the blogs go according to URL, not IP address, so since the URL will point to a different address, everything that tries to access the URL (www.theweirding.net) will automatically be redirected to the new address. I don't think I have to change anything here, but I am pretty sure you will need to update your bookmarks.

Again, this has not happened yet! I am basically waiting until the very last minute to do all of this to try and avoid any downtime. I also want to have a lot of content to put up on the new address in addition to what I already have, so republishing what is already on the site now is no problem (just a quick FTP click), but I will have to reinstall The Wording and The Speakeasy and then publish any new material and that may take a few days.

I will definitely post to let you know before it happens so you have time to update your personal settings, but if you start getting "Page Not Found"-type messages, you'll know to look us up in your favorite search engine and all that.
