And Now...

In need of some free advertising, Encodable Industries will be creating personal websites for free over the next couple weeks.  Since every site has a small link at the bottom that points to the Encodable homepage, every site is a little bit of advertising.

Just use the contact page to say that you’re interested.  If you or someone you know wants a website like this one, to share photos or to have a weblog for example, please spread the word.  This is open to everyone, though it’s mostly aimed at broadband (cable, DSL) users, since for them a website can be completely free.  For dial-up users (read: users on a slow and intermittent uplink) it is of course necessary to pay for a web-hosting account for the website to live at.

It takes about 2-3 hours to get each website up and running, but the client (you) only needs to be present for about a half-hour of that time.

I would consider running my site using your blogging software, but I do not want to lose my previous posts that are stored in WordPress’ MySQL database tables. Do you have a migration tool to go from WordPress? Do you use MySQL as a back-end for your site?
I could help your write a migration tool, if you don’t want to do all the legwork yourself. Let me know if you’re interested.

I don’t have a WordPress migration tool, but if you can tell me the names of their DB tables and columns/fields, it should be pretty easy to code up a script.  Actually I guess I could just download it and check.

And no, my blogger uses flat files, not a DB, in the interest of maximum portability and minimum dependency fuss.  I wrote a DB version of it a year or two ago, but there was no worthwhile benefit that I could see.
