Blog Reset

I have moved hosting providers and domain names for my blog.

Along with the switch I also did a completely fresh install of WordPress. I did re-import the users (using SQL) and did an import using the wordpress import tool, but other than that everything else is completely brand new.

I think everything is back to normal, but if something looks odd please let me know.
