    I've been running 2.2.6 for over a year now at http://www.sportsdot.org/ [sportsdot.org] but I covet being cool and hip and running modern slash. I don't mind losing all of the UI work I've put into my current site, but I would hate to lose my users and stories. I am mighty in MySQL and Java, CVS etc -- all the skills of a developer, but weaker in PERL (though I can bend a regular expression if I need to). How realistic is it to think that I could install the latest stable, look at the new schema and the old schema, and roll my own translator (I'd use JDBC, becausds that's what I do), and make everything work? I'm guessing this would be the optimal upgrade strategy?

    Anyone done something like this before?

    Does this tag have the storyless headlines that appear on the index page, too? That's a neat feature.

    Has anyone had any success with installing Slashcode on hosted servers, you know, the kind where you pay a company $XX/mo. and get some space? It seems to me they'd have to be awfully nice, because several required packages need to be especially compiled for Slashcode. Or do you pretty much have to have root and exclusive access on a server to get Slashcode installed?
