More than a month ago, I warned, in “The Coming Transition,” that Lionel Deimel’s Web Log would have to be switched from being hosted on the same Web server as Lionel Deimel’s Farrago to being hosted on a Blogger server. If all goes well, the change will be transparent to you, the reader: all pages will retain their current URLs, and all links will work as they do now.
Blogger has provided (a week and a half late) software to help make a smooth transition, and I am hoping that it works as advertised.
I will be beginning the transition today. I may finish today; I may not. During the transition, this blog may temporarily disappear (or not). Whatever happens, please bear with me. Since it is impractical to post the status of the transition here, you may check it on the home page of Lionel Deimel’s Farrago. Look at the box in the upper right corner of that page. I will keep the status as up-to-date as possible. If it seems momentarily wrong, check back a bit later.
Comments left while the transition is underway should be retained, but, should anything go seriously wrong, there is a possibility that they could be lost.
If anyone wants to conduct a prayer vigil for a smooth migration, you have my blessing.
