Update Again

So....Reasonably Clever is now running from a new host. Things seem to be okay - the only thing that's forver borked is the old forum areas (only linked to in a couple of odd places). They're not coming back, so I really don't care too much about that.

If you spot any other major glitches, post a comment. I may or may not fix 'em, but it'd be best if I know about them.

The main reason for the move is that Blogger is getting rid of FTP support - the way I choose to host my blog. Fixing all the soon-to-be-dead links meant a major overhaul of RC - and if I'm going to do that, I might as well go ahead with a full revamp. (The last one was back in 2007, after all.)

As things stand, I can keep this blog (and this version of the site) as-is for a little longer. Meanwhile, I'll be configuring the new Wordpress version of the site. You might see occasional blips as I break things in the background. Pardon the dust. This will take a bit.

The end result will be much nicer for everyone - particularly since I won't be hand-publishing the comic HTML every day. (Yes, I've been hand coding pages for years. Yes, I'm insane.)
Since I have to go through the full archive page-by-page to move it into Comicpress there should be some incidental upgrades, too - stuff like a up to date character list, chapter tags, improved archive navigation, etc.

Speaking of the comic - I should have new episodes starting in a couple of days, Monday at the latest.

Anyway, that's what's going on.

^ Uh, jenx? this is blogger, not Reasonably Clever. this shouldn't be breaking...

Anyways, nice to know that its working again. I still can't tell the difference between the "old" and "new" sites (although maybe its because I'm still on the old site!).

@LMJ: Ah, but apparently the current blog IS having issues. Which is why I asked Jen (my wife) to test it for me.

As of yesterday all of RC is on a new host...I just uploaded all of the old site content to it so it looks "old." The new stuff is happening behind the scenes. (Unless you happen to catch me tweaking things.)

Several of the pages for the pig on a wing challenge are glitching, specifically:

@Pentigan:

Thanks. New host seems to be case-sensitive!

Looks like I can finally comment too. I wonder what was up yesterday.
