Are We Done Yet?

This post is to determine if the migration has worked properly. If you see it, it probably has.

UPDATE (3/5/2010, 10:24 AM ET): The blog is now on a Blogger server, and it appears that all graphics and comments are in place. The files on the old server are still there, but are no longer accessible. Moreover, references to a very old address for the blog, http://deimel.org/commentary/blogger/, are being properly redirected. The remaining problem is getting http://www.blog.deimel.org and http://blog.deimel.org to take visitors to the same place. The management software provided by my Web hosting service makes it difficult to make the necessary DNS changes. I am working on this problem. At least one of two addresses should take you to the blog, http://blog.deimel.org or http://www.blog.deimel.org. Of course, if you cannot read this, this advice may not be helpful. Since the URL that works may change, however, perhaps this update will indeed be useful. I hope that, in the end, either address will work.

UPDATE (3/5/2010, 10:58 AM ET): I’m waiting on my hosting service to solve the DNS problem referred to above. A couple of glitches have actually been solved by the switch to a Blogger server. For some reason, the search box on blog pages has lately been nearly invisible because its background has been the same color as the toolbar at the top of the page. The server change has fixed this, so it is now more obvious how the blog can be searched. Another problem had cropped up before the migration, and this one has not been fixed. If one tries to print a post from Firefox, only the first page prints properly. I have noticed this on other blogs, and I am trying to find an appropriate fix for it. Posts seem to print properly from Internet Explorer.
