Having several weeks to plan a careful and slow migration, I instead took a serious break from the web. Suddenly realizing that my original server is expiring on the 15'th (tomorrow), I have to make the jump quickly. Expect the site to keep changing (improving) for a while... But having people actively use the new site will be the encouragment I need to get everything working properly.
One feature I'm especially hopeful to see used is the new blogs. It'll allow users to keep their own journals, of which hopefully many will be appropriate to be posted on the front page.
The new site is running with Drupal 3.0.2. There's a lot more power available with their latest code in CVS, but I'm waiting a little longer to upgrade until the new meta-tag system is completed and tested.
As for the old content, much of it will not be migrated. Over time though, I intend to migrate many of the more popular older stories into the new archives.
