‘Migration of the websites…”


Where in the world am I today?: North Vancouver, BC, Canada

The decision was made recently to migrate my various websites to a single location and the process of making it happen really started today… I gathered all of the passwords, user ids, email addresses, server addresses, blah blah blah, you name it and constructed a master document to help make the move as painless as possible…

I sort of view this like the process of upgrading software or a computer operating system. OK, I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of a tech geek and am easily convinced that upgrades are a good idea even though they sometimes mean re-learning how to do something I already know how to do… Perhaps I view it like a sort of Sudoku puzzle to figure this stuff out… It’s my way of keeping my brain young by forcing it to relearn systems that have worked ‘just fine’ for months if not years…

Does this mean I’m a sucker for punishment? Well… Perhaps…

As much as I’m a bit of a tech geek and would love to know everything there is to know about everything I sometimes get distracted and my focus strays from the things I should actually be working on. To help gain a bit of perspective I’ve started working with a hired gun who’s keen to update some of the systems I have of marketing and promoting my show and help me keep my focus on the things that will actually benefit me more than getting bogged down with minutiae. He’s good! I’m excited about the direction that things are headed in, and this week’s project is the migration of my various websites –






– all over to a single domain hosting service. It’s all part of the master plan and although change is sometimes scary, the timing of the move feels good or various reason.

The hosting service that Mr. Hired Gun suggested was, etWEBHosting.com which is also the home to my friend David Duchemin’s various projects. Apparently the customer service and support are off the charts – cool… If the migration of the various bits and pieces comes off with out a hitch I’ll be thrilled. If things go sideways and you (or I) can’t access the blog, you’ll have been given a head’s up.

As the logo above says, etWEBHosting is a division of Electric Toad Internet Solutions, so let’s here’s hoping that Electric Toad know’s what it’s doing!
