Upgraded, swapped hosts to lunarpages, I'm alive!!
I'm pleased to report that you have reached the new home for Tim's Journal. I procrastinated for quite a while, worrying about losing my laminate flooring hits, but finally realized that I had completely lost sight of why I started blogging in the first place - to capture ideas, thoughts, hopes and dream so that tomorrow I can remember yesterday.
The backend has been updated to Movable Type 3.32. What an upgrade from 3.14! Plugins are much easier to manage and it even comes default with a style swapper. Installation was a breeze. Overall, very professional.
After about 3 months of testing, I have swapped my preferred host, from Globat to Lunarpages, and couldn't be more pleased. Performance is zippy, scripts run 3-4x faster. The File Manager which includes an option to extract tar.gz and zip archives. (I had written a silly little PHP script at Globat which thankfully is no longer needed.)
If you can't tell I'm really excited to start blogging again. Welcome!
