Work in progress

I like my new website much better, but I lost lots of readers. I suspect that people who Google La Palma related stuff look st the results and trust much more than

So the La Palma stuff is moving back to


Just to make things interesting, the combined site is just over the maximum size to import the whole shebang at once. I’m going to:

  1. Backup something (eg, the comments)
  2. Delete it
  3. Export the website
  4. If it’s still too big, repeat steps 1 & 2 as necessary.
  5. When I have a successful export, restore the backups.
  6. Blaspheme violently about which ever part didn’t restore.
  7. When this site’s sorted, import the big backup into
  8. Delte La Palma stuff from here
  9. Delete non-La Palma stuff from there
  10. Have a large G&T.

World domination is postponed until next week.


Wish me luck.
