Still working on getting things set up. I’ve been very busy with work and had to take a dog to the vet this morning so I haven’t had a lot of time, but you may have noticed that the sidebar is growing.
I haven’t come up with a solution to the image thing yet. I’m thinking that, since the blog content is stored in a database, it might be possible to use an SQL query or script to simply find image links, strip the existing path, and replace it with a new path.
I’ve asked a couple Database people I know what they think about it, but if anyone out in internetland has any input on that possibility, I’m all ears.
In the meantime, I’m going to start at the beginning and work my way forward and just replace the blogger hosted images with locally hosted ones. Doing that will probably take several months if not a year to get them all changed over, but that’s my only other option, so I may as well get started on it.
At any rate, just wanted to give an update.
