And so the site transfer goes on...

...and on, and on...
I've already decided that this version of TheBroadroom.Net...the one that appears on this server...is going to be better than the last. There's no point in transferring a four-year-old site that's still getting new content dumped into it, unless you make the new version better.
For historical purposes, I've worked on this site on three computers: a Windows 95 custom built one, a Windows 98 HP (before HP went to crap), and a Windows XP one. Hence you are talking about Java applet class files, honkin' old HTML files, a few random Flash movies, several scripts on a database, yadda yadda...culled from three different computers...all having to fit into the new site.
Everything is going to the new site template. I don't care how long it takes me to convert it. In fact...I'll guess the only reason you're reading this is because you have a site yourself...it's my sincere advice that you shouldn't care.
Everything on the Net now is boiling down to the lowest common denominator. It's a bit harder to control the Net than, say, television or radio or anything else that's already been suctioned by the tentacles of capitalism-for-the-sake-of-capitalism, if only because the Net is still dependent on GEEKS to survive. Someone has to write the code. Someone has to make the miracles happen.
Hence, it is the responsibility of the REAL geeks to keep on coding. Hence, the new site will always be better than the last.
