Not expecting to be here? Please read on …

It has been an eternity, but I finally carved out the time to migrate the most popular items from our experimental Drupal 4.7 site to our shiny new Drupal 6 site. More content still awaits migration, namely video astronomy, but most of the technical elements are present.

This task was complicated by the experimental nature of the old install. It was one of the very first Drupal configurations we did, and as such was a hodgepodge of settings, modules and hacks to make it do what we thought it should. While Drupal’s automatic conversion (Drupal 4.7 —> Drupal 5 —> Drupal 6) might have worked, it would have brought along a lot of stuff that I just didn’t want to deal with. Sometimes starting from scratch is just a better way, especially when the main elements could be moved in a few hours.

If you arrived here from a stale link, please use the search to help find the information you seek. Or drop me a message and I will direct you to the new location or prioritize migration of the content you want to have.

Much more work needs to be done, but for now the foundation is laid, the walls are up, the roofs on and most of the rain is being kept at bay.
