A fun day in…

…fuelled by a grade 3 hangover and a cheese and ham sandwich I undertook the massive challenge of moving Papersurfer from one hosting company to another. Not content with the overwhelming complexity of the task at hand I also decided a new theme design would be in order. A somewhat foolish errand but overall things have unfurled very smoothly.

Having read several articles on ‘mySQL migration’ and ‘database management’ I opted for completely ignoring them and instead went for pressing the big button that said ‘EXPORT’ in my dashboard then I went to my new blog site (a one-click install of WordPress at Dreamhost) and clicked the big button that said ‘IMPORT’.
