Double great success!

WICKED. The blog is hooked up. Smugmug is hooked up. And... what do you know?! was available and I just snapped it up!! I'm not sure I'm going to use it...
but... better to have and not need I guess.

Great success.

It's happened ;-) now goes to my smugMug site... now to hook up this blog to a sub domain at avfx... it should be simple and quick this time!

down the DNS rabbit hole I go.

Well.. I was a bit naive then. Changing the zones file info didn't adjust the ACTUAL nameservers involved to point at the right domain etc... but a bit of assitance from Kenneth and Adam here at Weta and well... things should start happening soon! Oh exciting...

now... to start figuring out how to change the appearance of this blog into something more acceptable..

Changes AfFOOT

so it's happening I just updated the CNAME and A records at my registrar to begin pointing things to the new locations.... I've upgraded to the pro account at smugmug and am trying the new features... most noticeably the watermarking... next up, tomorrow morning hopefully to point the blog at

It's been about 10 years that avfx was going. It's old and boring now! Goodnight.

Getting started

Hokaay... so... gonna give this blogger thing a go as a way to have a partner site to my smugmug stuff and a way to keep family and friends up to date with our activities at home etc... got a few things to do to make it all work though:

  1. cease hosting the old site at kiwiwebHost  -  keep
  2. upgrade to a pro account with smugmug.
  3. change the smugmug to point to
  4. change the blogger to point to
  5. Profit!
So that should keep me busy for a little bit...
