It happened one night. By the time I gave up the hopes of retaining all the blogposts in the new site, I accidentally stumbled upon this plugin "mosimage" for Joomla 1.5.X. This was a God sent thing for people with voluminous Joomla 1.0 site. Once I installed it and moved the content database to new one, I found my new version site up in few minutes. Quite unbelievable!!! So I dedicate this upgraded site to "Burek" who wrote this plugin. Now I have got the basic site up and running and the enhancements will be in coming days for sure. As of now I am planning to build a separate library section for my books and DVD collection, for which I have some other plans for future. However the rest of the other functionalities are left intact with the old version.
