There are a number of changes for MeisterPlanet.com taking place right now. I’ve switched from POE Hosting to MJZ Hosting due in small part to the reduced monthly web hosting fees, but mostly because of the extra harddrive space that comes with their servers.
The increase from 600MB to 5,000 will reduce the stress of worrying about some of the oddball, large video and image files I’ve served from here on occasion. The 50GB of monthly traffic will help in that regard as well.
Since I would need to reconfigure the blogging software anyway, I decided it was time to move on from MovableType due to their new licensing issues with the release of version 3.0 of their software. I’ve chosen WordPress as my new journal backend, due both to positive word of mouth and the open GPL license the codebase is released under.
