  1. I hope you will also remove the comment spam that has accumulated in some of the abandoned blogs but please keep these blogs!

  2. Thomas, can you point me to some of the specific blog links? I’ve been automatically removing the spams I notice on the active blogs, and I’d like to add the criteria for the spam I haven’t seen.

  5. Thanks German and Mark. It took way too long, but the final migration itself went pretty well. I’m glad we finally have completed the migration.

  6. Nice work, John! Really. But the letters are very small. Can you make them bigger?

  7. Looks nice, but I wish you could increase the default font size.

    Or at least make possible to resize fonts in the browser.

  8. John, I don’t want to press you but it seems that a very big ‘fish’ has problems. And it’s a very rare one, believe me… 🙂 After months of silence, Steve (Shaughnessy) decided to blog about the neat DB things which are in RAD St 2007 but it seems that the replies of his last (three?… – istm) blog posts are truncated. Can you have a look, please? Thanks anyway for your effort! (the new blogging engine it’s really a step forward)

  9. m. Th: thanks for your comments. Could you give me the direct link to the problems with Steve Shaughnessy’s blog comments? We fixed the truncation problem with the migration tool yesterday, so I’d like to know about any other data problems we’ve missed. Thanks much!

  10. Nevermind, John. Yes, I saw that the truncation problem disappeared _after_ I did my post. OTOH, some posts on Steve’s blog are still missing/(deleted?) but imho, it’s better like this because sometimes, men tend to be a little “religious” when they speak about databases, you know… 😉

    Another thing to note (now that you have a full time Cleggy on your side 🙂 – congrats for both of you) is that, because many of guys seems that do nice posts which generate “hot” discussions, perhaps is a wellcome addition to have feeds not only for the main post, but also for comments. (Istm, Nick has it already) Can you add it?
