When moving domains there will be a need to replace old url's and other strings to reflect the new names.
In my case the images of my blog articles were still pointing to the old domain which didn't physically exist anymore. Result: broken images and links.
A quick SQL replace does the trick:
UPDATE blog_posts SET post_content = REPLACE(post_content, 'old-server.com', 'new-server.com') WHERE post_content LIKE '%old-server.com%'
This SQL statement is perfect for updating wordpress blogs that moved to a different domain/host.

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! While you're still sipping your Guinness and chewing on your shamrocks, everything seems to be new and shiny at Google: As announced today in their new Google Chrome blog, Google has released their new beta of Chrome.
Did Google Chrome Just Get Even Faster?
Have I mentioned speed yet? As if (ooooold stable version of) Chrome wasn't fast enough, the neeeeew beta promised 25% to 35% in speed enhancements according to their V8 and Sunspider benchmarks. Ask your typical user to see why speed matters 😉
Which Browser do you use?
Are you still on Internet Explorer? Don't tell me IE6 - I'd have to creep through your monitor and strangle somebody... Firefox? Chrome? What are your experiences?
