New blog, same as the old blog

After 7 years at http://blogs.sun.com/alanc/, this blog has a new URL: http://blogs.oracle.com/alanc/. I'm sure you can figure out the change to the RSS & Atom feed URL's as well - and apologies if the URL changes in those feeds caused your feed readers to determine the posts were all new, though fortunately, I get around to posting here so rarely these days, there shouldn't have been too many.

I didn't realize it until I went back to look for writing this post, but my blog was live for exactly 7 years on the old site - my first post was April 29, 2004 - the site went live a few days earlier, but I was traveling for that year's X.Org conference, so didn't get my account setup and post to it until I got there. They froze blogs.sun.com on April 29 this year to start migrating to the new blogs.oracle.com, integrating the Sun & Oracle bloggers, using the same Apache Roller software Sun used.

Three years later, I joined the people looking back for the third anniversary of blogs.sun.com and wrote “So much change in 3 short years - who knows where the next years will lead us?” — certainly I never expected then that three years after that Oracle would have bought Sun. I can only wonder what will be written in April 2014, on what would have been the tenth birthday of blogs.sun.com.
