I am in the midst of moving my various websites from their individual websites, to bring them altogether on a Virtual Private Server.
I’ve been hosting with Xcalibre for several years, and I am not exactly abandoning them – they have sold off their hosting operation to Webfusion, who just happened to have some decent deals on VPS, so I am transferring it all across.
As well as moving the websites, the VPS will also be taking over some tasks that I have had running on machines in my home for years – one of them being the FILK_UK list. At one time, I took some pleasure at having a bank of computers in my office, powered up 24/7, but one of my jobs this year is to move my office into the smaller bedroom, and so I aim to reduce my machines to one desktop, one laptop, and one Linux test server, and all only powered up when in use. Not forgetting my Eee, but that doesn’t live in the office.
Anyway, folk will be pleased to hear that I won’t be moving the FILK_UK list until after the convention in February – although it should be a fairly transparent move, I don’t want to run the risk of messing it up the week before the con!
However, this website *has* moved – from what I can see the DNS change has propagated by now, so hopefully this post will be made on the new site, my LiveJournal link will still work, and nothing will break.
Let’s see, shall we?
