  2. Paul Burns says:

    Wonderful! Howard gone and now the big purple blog is back. What more can we ask.

    Well done tigtog.

    A lipsniger of a post, over there, will be needed to lure the luvvies away from exile. The place where I would have been heading if the rodent had again slipped out of the trap.

  4. Andrew says:

    I think just exporting from, importing these into the new old site and then deleting everything from here (apart from a pointer back) would be the way to go.

  5. Iain says:

    Until it breaks down again, how many times has it been down just in the last year????
    Frankly I doubt the value of self-hosting when the standard WordPress platform works so well.

  6. joe2 says:

    Sounds a bit dramatic Andrew.
    L.P. in exile now has a place in blog history.
    You leave stuff up and never delete in MHO.

  7. tigtog says:

    I don’t think we’ll be making final decisions until the New Year, but I expect we probably will port these posts back over to LP for the sake of continuity, however I don’t see why we’d necessarily delete all the stuff here.

  8. bahnischba says:

    Good point joe2. This post would look silly if exported back to LP.

  9. tigtog says:

    BTW, thanks for your concern Iain, but self-hosting has its advantages too. We’re hoping the new webhost and server will be less likely to result in “bandwidth exceeded” messages disrupting your browsing.

  10. Bismarck says:

    Is it back? Doesn’t look like it this morning.

  11. Bismarck says:

    I withdraw that.

  12. joe2 says:

    Seems to be a lot of friction over there.
