Data Export

I’m still considering moving this site from being WordPress based over to a static site. My plan is to conduct a few experiments first to see how the process works and if the end result would work the way I want it to.

The first stage in this process has been to export all of the written content from the site to allow it to be converted. What has been a surprise is that despite having posts and comments going back to 2002 it only amounts to a 3.8MB XML file. Being XML there is plenty of data structure information in the file which will increase the file size. So ultimately the actual site data accumulated is even less! Graphics, images & other uploads are obviously not included but I still find it an interesting fact.
