The wind of change is blowing through my sales site. To put that in a less overblown way, the work preparatory to changing web hosts and improving the site in the process has reached a critical juncture. There will come a point, probably over a weekend, when the site is replaced by an “under construction” sign as we go through a series of tests to ensure that the site will work as I intend. A friend in California has been doing the coding for me, and has been beavering away assiduously for several weeks now.
Some of the transfer procedures have turned out not to be quite as automatic as we had hoped. Though the “index” pictures for each pen will transfer just fine, all the other pictures are not quite so cooperative and will have to be moved manually. I need to reduce the amount of stock on the site to avoid being overwhelmed by the amount of work this would require, so I’ll be having a sale with deep price cuts in the near future. It will, of course, be announced here.

That sounds like a lot of work to go through. Looking forward to see your new website.
All of the very best and hopefully you will soon be back to full production.
It has been a lot of work, Rui, but it will be well worth it. There are some decided, if unspectacular, improvements to the way that the site works. Equally as importantly, or even more so, the site will be hosted by people I have every reason to have trust in instead of the present lot who have given me endless trouble.
Congrats, I look forward the new site revamp. Perhaps, adding a sales archive too?
I hope it will make it easier to use. I can’t do a sales archive, unfortunately, but all the important pens are covered in my blog anyway.
