That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but I’ve just imported the entire archive of my old blog at johncaruso.ca to this site. It was about 360 posts that date back to 2004 when I used to ramble on about mundane day to day things I was up to.
Its been fun to re-read some of those posts and reminisce, but at the same time, there are a bunch of formatting issues I now have to deal with since it was a completely custom site before and I had some weird css to make certain things (like code snippets) look just right. I’ll need to groom those posts and fix whatever needs fixing.
At the same time, it was a fun little exercise to generate a WordPress compatible XML file to export my old blog database to. Now I just need to generate the URL rewrites from my old site to point here so I can remove those posts from there and clean up that site a bit.
