Everything’s now on a new server.
The new server is in the UK. (Zen Internet)
The old one was in the US. (GoDaddy)
For me, and most of the SoCoder crew, the downloads are much faster. But most of us are UK based.
If you’d like to compare speeds, the following 4Mb file may, or may not, help you see the difference.
Old Server vs New Server.
Click to download, watch as they do, and if there’s a drastic difference, let me know which is slower!
Anyhoo, most of the stuff is “as is”.
I was going to spend some time yesterday playing with different WordPress themes, but I managed to resurrect most of the current one without too much of an issue.
Wordpress’s server move has, of course, completely lost my “Featured Image” settings, so none of the releases have their nice big header image anymore. I had to manually re-add them to the last three so that at least the sidebar shows them.
There’s probably much worse going on in the archives, but I daren’t look!
If you spot any glaring omissions, be sure to let me know.
Code wise.. Nothing!
The day was spent playing about on the iPad, making the Choon above, and generally watching an FTP uploader doing various things to the server.
A long process, with all the games, music, pixelart, SoCoder uploads and everything else being uploaded, resulting in the site having used up over 25Gb of it’s monthly bandwidth already! Yikes!!
.. Going to have to keep an eye on that, methinks!

Platdude’s having his head examined.
The Doctor is pleased with his progress.
Moving to a new server,
Tweeaking the site to fit.
Most things seem ok,
But the email speeds are shit.
