WE DID IT! This blog now has a new suit of armor and a new steed to ride.

We did it.

We had a fairly narrow window to get the blog moved, but the CRACK EXPERT TIGER TEAM did it.

The blog has a new home.

Many many thanks go out to CB and JR (amazing) who were instrumental in the move and, as always, DY.  Without whom this blog wouldn’t have survived its first redition and challenge back in its earliest days when it first exploded.

You all might need to change some bookmarks.

Anything that had an address with


now loses the /blog/

The RSS feed is https://wdtprs.com/feed/

There is a bug email.  If you find something that is broken, other than my heart at what’s going on in the Church,


Actually, my heart is as hard as one of those metals like, you know, Unobtainium.  It’s an honor to live in this time of war.

And the blog just obtained a new suit of armor and a new steed to ride.

    But Father, but Father, some of you are saying:

    I have 704 instances of “wdtprs.com/blog/” on my iMac!

  3. Suburbanbanshee says:

    Vivat to Father, the Team, and this blog!

    I went to “Fr Z” from google and it brought me to a page from 25 March 2008! About a Bugatti!

  5. SKAY says:

    Great News! :-D

  6. Gregg the Obscure says:

    heartfelt thanks to all who brought this to a successful completion

  7. MitisVis says:

    CRACK TEAM for sure, smooth as that move was. Of course that was from this end, which doesn’t show the possible frantic chaos and brilliant solutions in the background some of these moves entail.

    Great news. It’s working perfectly for me. Didn’t have to change anything – bookmarks, favourites, anything… even on my crocky phone. Sincere thanks to the Z-team.

  11. Sid Cundiff in NC says:

    So glad. that you’re back better than ever.

  12. Getting thing going successfully on a new server is like slipping on a new pair of well-constructed and comfortable new shoes and smelling the new leather…congrats on a successful migration; having done more than I care to think about…it’s a testament to the skill of your back-end team.

    [Or… new car smell?]

    To add to jaykay’s obselvation, the redirect works quite well: even on this post that didn’t exist before, I can add /blog/ and it automatically removes it and I get the post.

    Myself, I was in a comment spree when the move happened (didn’t see the post about the move when I started), and only one comment was lost (happily, one that was easily replaced).

    Also, the preview feature works again!

    And, oh joyous day, the login form’s HTTPS is up to current security standards at last!

    Father, I noticed you had another domain name temporarily; any plans for that?

  14. rwj says:

    Quite the seamless transition for the end-user. Bravo! Ad multos annos!

  15. KAS says:

    Delighted your blog is well defended!

    The dogs bark but the caravan moves on.

  18. Gab says:

    What a smooth transition! well done to Team Z technos. And the site loads faster too!

  19. JoanM says:

    Good ping on the change,

  20. Semper Gumby says:

    Thank you and well done to Tech Wizards and Fr. Z.

    Kerry: Ah, Galaxy Quest, good one.

    MitisVis: Good point, WDTPRS Mission Control yesterday may have resembled the scene in “Airplane” where the control tower had to talk down a passenger plane to a safe landing.

    Tech Wizard #1 (hair and tie askew, chain-smoking Lucky Strikes, sweat-stained scapular, tapping furiously on a laptop):

    “Surely we can get this done before Compline.”

    Tech Wizard #2 (hair and tie askew, chain-smoking Lucky Strikes, sweat-stained scapular, tapping furiously at a Cray supercomputer):

    “Yes, we can. And don’t call me Shirley.”

  21. Deo volente says:

    Is the blog’s RSS feed address accurate? My feed validator says it is not!

  22. davidpaulyoung says:

    RSS feed address: https://wdtprs.com/feed/

  23. John 1 14 says:

    adorientemengine might be the greatest e-mail address ever.

  24. LeeGilbert says:

    Before the switch I was not able to get on the site without switching to a VPN. AND, the other day in my first attempt to send you an email, it would not let do so without my first getting off the VPN. Talk about a catch22.

  25. iPadre says:

    Glad you finally go rid of the /blog

  26. Josephus Corvus says:

    I don’t know if this was planned or not, but the new home loads a LOT faster when I go to it from within my work’s firewall. Great job!
