A D'Arcy Inspired History of Blog

Riffing from D'Arcy's idea and cleaner sketch, I tried mapping out the blog history of cogdogblog.com


April 19, 2003: CogDogBlog 1.0 launched on maricopa server jade.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/alan using MovableType


April 26, 2005 Migrated blog to WordPress (1.5) leaving old one as archive and moving new one to jade.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/cdb - Content was exported from MovableType (comments were not preserved) and imported into the new WordPress site. It sat for a while with a basic Kubrick Theme with a dog header ;-) The archive site (/alan) was re-templated to remove comments and to provide a redirect to the new WP version of same entry.


Jul 20, 2005 - with idea from Steve Dembo, registered cogdogblog.com domain, for now, forwarding to the maricopa server


Nov 11, 2005 - recast design using the current style, modified from the Headspace theme


Jan 5, 2006 - moved both blog and old archive from Maricopa server to one donated by Audree at audsplace.com. I had tons of image references and links to the old jade.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu site, and while I could set up redirects on the jade server, to make it cleaner, I did a database dump, search and replaced the old URLs with the current, and rebuilt the database.


Dec 14, 2006 Too much traffic killed the favor, moved everything again to current host at DreamHost

    nice. I got lucky - I don't think I ever lost comments during a migration. Not sure how I dodged that one...
