I've finally completed rolling over to to a new, self-hosted blog platform!
The process took a bit longer than I wanted, mostly because it web development remains a messy, iterative process - at least for me. Since I ended up unifying both the blog and the old Character Rigger's Cookbook as well as on old markdown wiki, I had to do a lot of little scripts to groom the old content into a consistent format and linking strategy. Add in more than a modicum of CSS noodling and whatnot and my 'couple of weekends' project turned into a couple of months.
However all that is behind me now, and all my future updates are going to be coming up at theodox.github.io (you can also use www.theodox.com). If you're subscribed to the current feed, you should switch over to either http://theodox.github.io/feeds/atom.xml or http://theodox.github.io/feeds/rss.xml, depending on your reader; one of the nice side effects of the switch is that the new feeds are much cleaner than Blogger's -- no more CSS gibberish instead of article summaries, thank you very much!)
I'm going to leave this site intact, and I'll try to keep monitoring comments and so on here, but the new site is going to be where all the news stuff comes out. I'm also going to change the blog.theodox.com redirect so it goes to the new site, so if you're using that in a blogroll you won't have to update it.
PS. I had to touch a lot of content during the migration: there are about 150 blog posts, several dozen wiki pages, and a bunch of articles that all had to be repointed and I'd be pretty surprised if nothing odd slipped through. Please let me know using the comments at the new site so I can fix up anything that's confusing or misleading.
So, here one more link to the new site, just in case. Hope to see you there!
