Dirty Boxers – Take 2?

So, this is it! The first post EVER over on the new, improved servers which have been generously donated by Bren from thisrealitypodcast.com. Now this move was always on the cards, but the manner it was done, and how quickly we acted was not. So you might notice this site is currently rather bare and ‘broken’. However, I have been up most of the night sorting stuff out, and have got to a point I thought I’d explain what happened because I thought it was only fair.

To be honest, it has been a mad 18-ish hours, and here is just a summary:

  • 1&1 take down our servers again
  • During a rather mad Skype conversation, it is agreed to move across to the new servers
  • At 8pm (ish) dirtyboxers.net is purchased
  • By 9pm (ish) WordPress 3 is installed to the servers
  • Between 10pm and about 5am, Tony ‘The Battys’ laptop was uploading ALL 61 episodes of the show to the new server
  • I didn’t go to bed until 4.30am after uploading and playing with the design / structure of the site

So, because this was a truly flash / bugger it! / Let’s do it decision, the site is rather empty. I will be working on content and populating the site most of today, and new episodes of the show will be launched shortly!

Now, why did we do this?
Basically, I felt I was continually letting you down with the inconsistent access we had to the 1&1 servers, plus the costs were just stupid For you, the only change will be where you go to comment on shows etc – dirtyboxers.net. All the feeds for iTunes / Zune etc should just work and update normally!

Anyways, thank you for your support over the past few months, it has been truly amazing – and now let’s make the next few months truly awesome!
