Blog@Case News for December 2004
The move to the NAS was successful! Everything seems to be working. If you notice something awry, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or even better, you can post it on your blog.
Now that we've gotten the final major infrastructural change out of the way, we can concentrate on finishing up the feature set. More announcements posted soon.
Hello, Beta Testers!
Blog@Case will be a little choppy tomorrow as we move it over to the NAS. If you try to access your blog and all kinds of errors start occurring and your browser does a frantic dance of trying to find where to go, that's whats happening. No data or configuration changes should be lost during the transition, so don't fret.
The main contents (the '/<username>/' parts) will be moved onto the NAS with the blogging engine and web server components remaining on the local box (for those of you interested in that sort of thing). This will allow us to do file system based backups easily, if we choose to do that (in addition to the MySQL backups), and whip up more blog servers consuming data from the NAS as necessary to scale to whatever load(s) we end up under.
Thanks for your patience!
We'll be happy to see the numbers grow as we take on more Beta participants in the run-up to release this service for public consumption.

Plus, it just looks nicer.
Planet Case has been setup. It aggregates all of the content created on Blog@Case and displays it in descending order (the newest is at the top). This page is useful to those that do not use an actual aggregator (like Bloglines or NetNewsWire) or to those people who want to subscribe to the entire Case feed, which can be accessed at http://blog.case.edu/planet/rss20.xml.
We've got more features in the works, so there are more announcements pending. Keep up the Beta testing!
