The Last Post!

WordPress has release yet another security update. After the fun and games of recent upgrades, this is the end. Good bye cruel world, Smiffy's Blog is closing for renovations. This is the last post that will be made through the WordPress software.

The “user side” of this web log will be available for viewing until the new software is up and running – hopefully quite soon.

Having mapped most of the WordPress database schema, I am about to export all the old posts into my new test system. The first module to come on line will be the public side – then I can kill off WordPress once and for all. At this point I will be making new entries by writing SQL queries and feeding them directly into the database. (This is not as bad as it sounds, if one spends as much time writing SQL as I do.)
