Forum added…finally!

The last week has been slow as I’ve been furiously doing a data migration by integrating the original Sony TR World forum into this site. I actually started planning this over 2 years ago but I didn’t have the time to do the move or plan the data migration. Over time, the move became really necessary because the phpBB software I was using was so prone to be attacked by site spammers that I was spending so much time cleaning out bad messages and user accounts.

Even with some time freed up and some careful planning, I knew it was going to be a lot of work; however, it ended up being even more difficult than I imagined. There was lots of data massaging I had to do to get most things working. The end result is the new forum section on the site! All of the old forum posts now automatically map to the new, more easily readable urls so Google and other search engines should pickup on it soon. If you register on the forum then you can more easily leave comments for postings and reviews. I’ll get to cleaning up the front page with forum information and account info in the next round of updates.

I also spent a lot of time optimizing the site so it should be loading a little bit faster than before. Performance was killing me as it was difficult to update the site when developing on the live server. Hopefully, it’s fast on your end.

I’m almost finished collecting data for my Nike+ vs. Sony S2 Sports review so that should be interesting to read. It’s been an interesting experience switching back and forth between products. By interesting I mean frustrating since getting used to different interfaces has been maddening. Anyways, expect by next week and check your feeds!
