The End Of An Era

Whoa, so apparently Blogger is going off FTP publishing. I know this because there’s been this big banner sitting on top of the page that we log into to write new posts with this warning/notice, for like…at least four months now, probably easily double that. I just haven’t really noticed it until now, or didn’t realize how big of a deal it was.

That means that the current infrastructure of our site will no longer be supported after April. So in two days time, we will no longer be able to publish new posts…and so that means, effective as of May 1, 2010, The WAMBAG will no longer exist as an active Blogger…blog.

We’ve been using Blogger since August 2002, and so the end of this partnership is not an insignificant one. They have been good to us. If they weren’t around back in 2002 and I actually needed to manually throw stuff up here in a manner that took anything more than a minimal amount of effort…we wouldn’t have made it past Day Four.

That might have been a good thing.

But thanks to Blogger, we’ll never know.

So now we will be switching to WordPress, which is something I was planning on doing like four years ago anyway, but was just too lazy to ever get around to it. The time required for the transition will depend entirely on how much I actually feel like doing it in my spare time that is not devoted to Mass Effect or Left 4 Dead.

So very possibly, we could be looking at the end of The WAMBAG, forever.

“I did the right thing, didn’t I? It all worked out in the end.”
“‘In the end?’ Nothing ends, Adrian. Nothing ever ends.”

Destined to fight the world's evil, The WAMBAG endures massive battles involving impossible stunts, races on horse-pulled carriages, and the desecration of enchanting medieval castles (all done with dizzying computer graphics). Not only does the eye candy keep on coming, the tongue-in-cheek writing and deep Transylvanian accents perfect the film with a dose of dark humor.

Apparently PHP7 doesn't support the same function calls I wrote in 2008? I should fix this at some point.
