Many people are paranoid about moving their hosting around but it should not be difficult. The basics over it are simply a change to the domain name servers.

Rename images to lowercase on mac osx

for f in *; do mv "$f" "`echo $f | tr "[:upper:]" "[:lower:]"`"; done

The above code helps overcome apple macs case sensitive naming issue of files.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.
