New site coming online... well, now, I guess

I hadn't planned on throwing this thing in the air so abruptly, but "oh well," I figure, "may as well get it running ASAP instead of dragging it along for another few years, eh?" That's me having a conversation with myself there, in case you missed what was happening.

Sorry about the mess, but maybe it will be "fun" for some of you to watch as this thing takes shape? Obviously, features will be coming online (and going offline) as I get used to the new digs, but overall, this will hopefully be a MUCH better system. Mainly, I'm looking forward to having it be more condusive to quick updates by myself, as well as maybe a few carefully selected drones.

If you're looking for the old content, here's what you're looking for: (it's all in the forums, actually, as I was using them to post news and such, which was displayed on the front page)
• Old "general news" posts
• Discussion Forums
• Old home page

Well, that ought to get us started, without too much disorientation. If you feel really lost, just go back to the old home page and suckle on your thumb for a bit. When you start to look around wondering "where'd everybody go?", just come on back.

Again, THANK YOU for coming by!! I'm very appreciative of your support. I hope to be more functional and complete as the days progress.

Best Regards,
Paul Hoza

It's coming along fairly well

I went through a great deal of deliberation about which backend script to use creating the new I'm honestly still not settled on the decision, but I guess this one will be pretty good. I just like to plan for far more than I ought to try planning for... I end up planning nearly indefinitely and it shuts me down. However, today's Big Plunge into the abyss of a new system has helped to just force me to act.

I'm working on a good way to get at least all the General News posts from the old system moved over, but I haven't spend much time on that yet. As you can see, I pulled one post in to test, but that was done manually. I really don't want to manually copy 150+ news posts, but I might just do it that way to get it done.

If you're coming from a big site, you'll be saying "150?!? That's nothin' dewd!!" Well, I know it's not too much, but that's only representative of the news posts from when I started using that system to post... not that there are a tremendous number of posts in the archives I guess.

Also, I've been holding off posting much for a LOOONG time because I didn't want to have to move stuff over!! Now you can see why. It's also been an excuse for me to not do the upgrade in the first place... bit of a conundrum there, eh?

Anyway, this is mostly a test of the comment posting system. Thanks for playing! :)
