Moving

At the end of April I decided to get a piece of software I’ve been wanting for a long time, a genealogy application. And seeing it cost only $30 I decided to get it, rationalizing if I was going to buy it I should do it now, while I can still afford it.

It stores the data in a database, so the pages are created on the fly rather than having to spend several days uploading 50,000+ pages. And it has much more functionality.

But I wasn’t able to make it work on Yahoo. I called them up and they told me my problem was that I needed to upgrade. Well, I upgraded and I still couldn’t load the data. So after a week of pure Hell trying to make something work that Yahoo had made sure couldn’t work, I purchased hosting from another provider, and another domain name. I am now the owner of both palmspringsbum.com and palmspringsbum.org. And in the not-to-distant future both of those will be pointing to the same place.

But that is several weeks in the future. Moving all these thousands of pages is a huge job, and I may have to individually edit every one of them.

For now, the genealogy has been moved to the new host and all the old pages at www.palmspringsbum.com/genealogy are gone. The genealogy can now be accessed at either www.palmspringsbum.com/tree or www.palmspringsbum.org/tree. And that is how it should be from here on out.

When I get the forum moved I will announce it. I anticipate there will be a lot of broken links and would appreciate it you would drop me a note if you should stumble across one so I can fix it.
