A side benefit was going through all the files and catching a few that I’d previously uploaded, but hadn’t saved copies in the folder on my C: drive. That inspired a New Rule: I keep a folder that mirrors exactly what’s up on the site (I was only about 98%). That way I can always be ready to overlay what’s on their servers if they get corrupted, and not have to dink about finding a few missing pieces.
But it all went very well. I didn’t expect to see the changeover until tomorrow, but when I logged on at the library mid-afternoon, the update had happened. I’ll still leave it all in parallel until the Monday update, anyway. And next weekend I’ll migrate evannichols.com. I was concerned about being without email when that switch happens, but if it goes as well as today’s cutover did, it should all be Completely Transparent To The User.*
