I let the site lapse for a while because I couldn’t be bothered setting up a linux VM and making the effort to secure it properly.
So I was waiting for another special like I had with zuver.com.au and my prayers were answered.
I am quite impressed with their user interface, I might actually stick with them at the end of the year.
I had to import all the old blog posts from a WordPress XML file. That was a quick process, until I realised:
- a lot of the links were to hucker.com instead of stephenhucker.com
- A few hundred URLs were pointing to
- stephenhucker.com So had to changed to stephenhucker.com/blog
- So I had to manually search and replace the WordPress XML file (~36,800 lines), upload the file, notice another error and repeated the process until I was satisfied.
Total time: about 90 minutes.
Which is pretty good I think.
