Any WordPress wizards out there?

Have started the process of moving all my various blogs and sites over to a more consolidated form on my personal webspace. You know, the space and domains that I’ve been paying for over the past several years but have only been using as a glorified FTP server. Bad me. Anyways, finally decided to sit down and install WordPress instead of just staring at it accusingly like I have been for the past month. I plan to syndicate and keep my old LJs as long as they’ll be hosted, but just want to have it hosted on my servers. However, …

Hello world!

HA. Have conquered the WordPress installation process. Would have been much easier if Asus hadn’t erased my copy of CuteFTP when they fixed my computer, forcing me to look for other less costly FTP options. Have now acquainted myself with the mysteries of SQL. Feeling generally accomplished. Daunted by the years of Livejournal posts that must be moved, however. Yeep.

The cleaning I didn’t even know I needed.

For the longest time I was feeling daunted and procrastinatory towards reading the friendslist because it was this huge behemoth of a thing and “catching up” entailed going through it all as far back as possible, then reading through each individual person’s blog when the “back5000000 posts” option failed. I started, then would stop and wander off, then come back, get scared, and wandered off again. But I’ve always felt that if people took the time to read your posts, they deserve the same, so I was determined to get through them. I might have a mild masochistic streak. Just …

Hey, cool!

I just took a peek at my DeadJournal, which I haven’t updated since 2001, and found out that they’d made me an Early Adopter! Sigh. All those perks and I rarely even use the thing. Almost tempts me to try…

Webfussing.

Psst, msjul and crownzeal! Webhosting back online under new domain name. All the stuff is still there, including your upload folders. Going through it slowly to clean up before the major rehaul. Do you guys still need the space, or the items in there? Let me know 🙂

*kicks LJ*

Just like old times again, I’m giving LJ a sound thwap over the head even as I happily pounce its many lovely users. Things haven’t gotten any less annoying, technology-wise, I see. Friending too many people in too short a time, my ass. When did they come up with that new rule? Probably to deter those annoying serial spammers from a few years back, I suppose. Still, it’s quite annoying when you’re trying to transfer accounts. Shouldn’t they have a program that does that by now? *sighs* Okay, so I suppose I’ll come back tomorrow and try to add the …

Journal relocation complete! Pierydys is the new Giddyupnow. And also the old one. Ah, whatever.

So, about a year ago, I mentioned in the now defunct giddyupnow journal that I was moving everything over here to make life a little easier. In that way where it had originally been part of this journal, then separated to house only fandom content, and now is being reincorporated anyways. Eh, I’m an odd duck. Yes, it took me a full year to slog through years of posts and copy them over to this account, but it’s finally done. Done, I say! *does manic dance of joyous accomplishment* Happily, it looks like those of you that I actually wanted …
