New hosting

I’ve moved my blog and associated pages from Dal CS to the dangerously incompetent data center. Also, I’ve moved it from pybloxsom to wordpress, mainly because of what Marc has written about it. So far I’m very impressed.

The most difficult thing has been setting up redirects from my old cs pages to these new ones, due to the apache configuration at Dal. I’ve had to do silly things like making a directory called “cv.html”, and placing an index.php file in there that will write out redirect headers. I also had to write up a quick python cgi program that translates requests for old blog posts into redirects to their locations on my new blog. Good times.
