Todd, can you link pathsoflegend.org to www.pathsoflegend.org? A blank index file greets visitors who don't use the www.

As I said, we always pimped the site with Ws, and if he libnks, it is possible for it to not work properly. Besides, we expect to have the archives at www.againsttheshadow.org/archives as soon as possible, so he may want to focus on that instead.

If someone goes to the non-www address, simply have them redirect to the full www address. Very easy. It's not Todd's fault, the old site was set up fine so I'm confident this one will be as well. It's just a pet peeve of mine. It shows how lazy some web admins are when configuring their site. www is NOT a necessary prefix in this day and age! It was originally to differentiate between gopher.site.edu, ftp.site.edu, wais.site.edu, etc.

Well, then we must seek that. I am not a coding and network man myself, so i can't really tell that kind of thing.  And that www is not necessary I know, but it is still very very common to have sites not working without them, ehre in Brazil most sites do not work properly with Firefox.

You may also want to lock all of the forums for posting at the old site. Occasionally there's still a new post.

Goodgood. Do we want to do one final file/SQL export or should we go with what we have?

I think we will go with what we have.  So far I haven't been able to use a tool to import the data. I am contacting the host to see if they can do it for me, but with the file being that big I dont know if they will.

Oh, I thought you'd transferred it over already...

I can't think of a tool that couldn't handle this data. It's really quite small as far as databases go. It could take a long time to upload though.
