I’ve just finished moving this blog to a different server, and I realized too late that I’d neglected to take one important step: choosing a catchphrase that I could use to indicate that the move had been completed. Here are some I’ve been considering:
The eagle has landed.
The car has parked.
The bicycle is balanced precariously.
The top is spinning, but it looks kind of unstable.
I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up.

Eagle this is Houston…
everything’s looking good from here,
First comment on the new site! Yay!
Nothing looks any weirder here than on the old site. Not even those Reece cup ballerinas.
Thanks … I think.
All systems are go! Um… autobots roll out? ;)
It’s one small step for a blog, and — well, really, that’s all it is.
And my work uses the oldest version of browsers, so you’re in good shape!
Thank you! I’m sorry you have to work under those conditions, though.
I’ve fallen and I can’t get up either. So what are we going to do?
Hang out on the floor with the cats? Make snow angels in the carpet? Concentrate really hard and see if we can levitate?
I found you. Thank goodness you left that trail of breadcrumbs!
I don’t remember ever reading this, and if it’s a national secret I’ll understand, but why did the eagle fly the coop?
It’s not a secret — it’s just boring. I decided to leave when WordPress.com changed their settings so that people who left comments got follow-up email by default. I really hated the fact that my blog was spamming people and that I couldn’t do anything about it. They eventually changed it back, but by that time, I’d already decided that having more control was worth losing the convenience of having wp.com run it for me.
Congrats on your move. And this kind didn’t even involve carrying boxes up and down steps! It’s like, win-win.
The cats were kind of disappointed there were no boxes, though.
Looks good here. Where is here anyhow?
I’m on a hosting service called WebFaction. So far things have gone pretty smoothly (except I think everyone got two copies of the email for my latest post, so I have to figure that out).
