I am Moving

Only in the WWW sense though.

Since this blog was created (way back in October 2007) it has always lived at blog.ianburnett.com. The main idea was that I would have a more serious website of www.ianburnett.com, with my blog being slightly less so. I would also have gallery.ianburnett.com to showcase my photography highlights, plus a couple of private websites for photos of Lucy and a wedding I went to back in 2007.

These days, however, it’s a struggle keeping on top of security for every individual site. Before a brief spring-clean this morning, I had the following:

  • A Joomla 1.0 site (loads of security holes)
  • A Joomla 1.5.1 site (quite a few security holes)
  • A Joomla 1.5.2 site (some security holes)
  • A WordPress 2.6 site (quite a few security holes)
  • My main WordPress 2.8 site (no known security holes)
  • Three Gallery 2.3 sites (no security holes, but quite a bit of admin)

That’s a lot of admin to look after. Neither do I need a heavyweight main website plus my blog, so they’re merging. This blog will eventually reside at www.ianburnett.com, with an automatic redirect covering any old links you may have. I will be dropping the mostly unknown gallery.ianburnett.com, in favour of a link to my Flickr site (which is now a pro account due to being a BT Internet customer). Let someone else look after the security!

Hopefully, nothing will break during this – bear with me while this change takes place. I’ll post again when things are updated and finalised.
