A quick update on my sites progress

I copied my website over to my new dedicated server over one week ago but the ISP only got the DNS records updated on Friday and those took some time to migrate. The only entries now in the old servers access_log are googlebots and Brian Duff's orablogs so I guess the DNS migration was successful. The new host seems faster to me, should be as my site is now the only one on it.

I had copied the whole site a week ago but I did need to re-copy some stuff yesterday, these are the dynamic parts of the site. This includes this blog, my other blog which is about web development. That blog has not been updated for some time but I plan to not continue the web site dicussion here and move it to there now that i have some interesting stuff to talk about web wise.

Going back to the upgrade; this blog was copied over again yesterday and I hope that its running well before its planned migration to Wordpress. I also copied my forum, which was not well after the move. I have closed it temporarily, so apologies to those people who are trying to access it, I am working on the issue this evening.

I also have some issues with my webstats that need to be resolved and also a problem with sendmail. As I said watch my web development blog if you are interested in the trials and tribulations of running a dedicated server.

Oracle security wise, I have a lot of planned posts listed in my TODO list. I plan to talk about recent conferences, Oracle Audit Vault, Oracle data vault, 0-days and some recent press and interviews. Please bear with me whilst my web mastering takes over for a couple of days..:-)
