This is an awful lot of work...
I spent most of yesterday working on a visual design. I am not supposed to be doing that. I am supposed to be doing the hard stuff, but I am procrastinating. I feel like my brain is a little fried right now, and I cannot wait for a chance to indulge in a little escapism (I might see The Day After Tomorrow... er ... tomorrow afternoon, for example).
To be honest, there are two areas that are giving me a major headache, and they are related. I need to figure out what to do with all the entries and comments that already exist, and having done that, I need to figure out how to make sure I don't break old permalinks.
I'm really close to just pushing the self-destruct button on everything that currently exists. Old stuff is going to take 80% of my development time, and that is ridiculous. Another option is just to leave the old database and archives as they are, but that solution is horrid.
If I pushed that button, it would be the one and only time it ever happened. This being a personal weblog, it really wouldn't be the end of the world.
I sound like I'm trying to convince myself, don't I?
