The Coming Transition

I received an e-mail message from Blogger today that, in less than two months, I will not be able to publish my blog in the same way I am now. If Lionel Deimel’s Web Log is to continue to use Blogger, it will have to reside on a Blogger (i.e., Google) server, rather than on the same server used by Lionel Deimel’s Farrago . If I have understood everything correctly—not at all a surefire assumption—I will be able to make the needed transition without too much trouble, and perhaps without having my blog disappear for 24 hours or so.

It is important for me to make the necessary changes quickly, as I am responsible for at least one other blog whose transition is likely to be more complex, and I need to gain some experience and perhaps warn others that URL’s will need to change for that blog.

If all goes well, Lionel Deimel’s Web Log will continue to be accessible at the address http://blog.deimel.org. Although I am not certain exactly when I will attempt the transition, when I do, I will keep readers informed of my progress on my home page, http://deimel.org. Be sure to check there for an update if my blog seems to have disappeared.
