And not a moment too soon. Traffic is down a significant percentage in the last few days. The site is so slow and bothersome that I even find myself hesitating to load more pages when I go to the site.
Anyway, while I was waiting, I made a list of all of the changes I think are necessary for the upgrade (although there is the potential that I could get surprised). I plan to update the list during the upgrade. There will be an outage during which the list will be unavailable, but that’s not a huge deal, hopefully. Some of the tasks don’t require the new server to be here for them to be started, so I’ve already begun.
Here is the list of upgrade tasks: http://lyricwiki.org/upgradeList.html
ps: If anyone wants to make a style-sheet to make the page less ugly, I’d be more than happy to put it up, but designing one is lower-priority for me than doing the things on the list.
