Test

Testing the new blog publishing settings.

Update 1:
DNS changes are starting to propagate. Images on www.roadflow.com are not showing up. Will continue to work on things.

Update 2:
Images previously hosted on www.roadflow.com are still broken. It's going to be a lot of work to reupload and change paths or maybe no work if it doesn't get done at all. What a pain. Here's a test image to find out what the url will be after uploading into the Blogger Black Hole. I hate not having control.



Update 3:
What a pain. Things are mostly back to normal. I won't even go into the details of what I had to move around and change. There are probably still a few missing images and broken links to sort out.

Update 4:
More pain. The entire blog had to be republished via Blogger/Google mechanisms. So, permalinks are no longer permalinks... urls such as ... blog.html are now blog_somenumber.html (i.e blog_45.html). I'm not sure how or why that happens. So hits are way down because links are broken. I guess Roadflow gets what they pay for with Blogger... nothing! Time to switch to Drupal and gain control?

Deprecating FTP

I guess the mighty Google can't handle blogs using FTP anymore. They turn it off at the end of this month. There's a conversion process that Roadflow will be starting now. There might be some problems so stand by.
