Tips for ISPs: when you migrate to a new webmail system, try to do it without:
- Vanishing user’s webspace content without warning
- Making users migrate their content by hand from old to new systems
- Changing the URLs on the new system so no old links work any more.
So, images in old posts will be coming back online gradually, as and when I get around to editing the posts with the new image URLs.
On the upside, though: it was nice to see that things really did degrade gracefully when all the scripts went missing. (For those that are counting, the following are scripted effects: category, citation, and info links; inline comments; linkblog items; reverse-chronological archives; and smart quotes and other typographical niceties in titles, posts, and comments.)
