They site may seem particularly laggy or nonexsistant tonight after normal business hours (which are what, exactly, for a blog?), and that is because we are having a long overdue update to WordPress installed, as well as moving to a different server.
The tech folks sent me some detailed information explaining what they are going to do, but they lost me at ‘Fantastico console,’ and as such, I quit reading it and skimmed to the point where I had a vague idea that something important was going to happen tonight.
You have been warned.

Damnit, I’ve got a production deployment of our app tonight and figured I’d spend my down time arguing whether Bush is a moron at BJ.com. Damn!
Fantastico’s easy; all you’ve got to do is say “I want a wordpress blog”, enter your user name and password, and then import your old blog database (probably using a DB editor also provided by your host).
Nothing really to it.
Good luck. All of us who continually give you crap secretly appreciate the work and effort that goes into keeping this thing available for our entertainment.
Hope it all goes well.

Good luck! As an old time IT guy I appreciate the sleepless nights it sometimes takes to keep a site like this alive.
May your ones and zeros find their way seamlessly to their new home.
Just so long as the new update is NSA proof. I wouldn’t the government to get a hold of my “hate America first blabberment

I think I may need a program upgrade. Anyhow, thanks for giving us Balloon Juice whatever the hell balloon juice is.
You apparently aren’t very technically inclined. ;)
Good luck John and I hope it fixes the problem.
