Moving day giveaway

Posted on Monday, March 8th, 2010 in idle by Ian

Over the next 24 hours we’re migrating to cloud hosting at Laughing Squid.

WordPress has been a fantastic (and free!) host, but we need to move. We really want the forum to be at dangerousprototypes.com, and we can’t do that with the current setup. The blog domain name is mapped in a way that only WordPress can add a CNAME record to a subdomain (i.e. forum.dangerousprototypes.com).

The DNS changeover should start in the next few hours. After the blog is migrated we’ll freeze the forum to prevent posts while we move the database. A bit of .htaccess foo will forward any old links to whereisian.com/forum to the new forum location.

Since this is the last post at WordPress, we’d like to mark the occasion with a PCB giveaway. We’ll send a free RGB color changer PCB to the first and last commenter on this post. This is the last post from the old blog, the giveaway applied to the post there. We’ll see who is the last to reach the old site within 24 hours.

    My comment disappeared too :( I had posted after Ben.

    Comments that were made after the move (and are still being made depending on your DNS server) didn’t make the switch. We’ll give the PCB to the last commenter on that WordPress-hosted post 24 hours after the change over.

    Am over here on the new site, looking like a good change.
