I should have known better, however, it was Breck's current blog article that made me realize the great iAnywhere blogs are no more available on their former URL, i.e. http://www.sybase.com/sqlanyblogs.

As a number of answers here link back to these blogs (and particularly to some great SA whitepapers that were "collected" on Glenn's blog under URL http://iablog.sybase.com/paulley/whitepapers/) - is there a way to point those back to their new home in the SAP web?


Yes, I do assume they are valuable enough to be migrated over there, apparently.

Generally, every Sybase blogger was made responsible to move their own content to sap.com. I am moving the SQL Anywhere material over to the SQL Anywhere Community from my blog and Glenns' blog. I am not migrating everything, only those posts that did not have some sort of time sensitivity (eg. conference announcements/reviews will not be moved over).

You may have already seen some of Glenn's posts (as well as mine) being reposted to the SQL Anywhere Community Blog. I have been trying to title these posts as "From the Archives" and release them regularly. I was thinking that by reposting them slowly, I could avoid the flood of spam accusations from other SAP community people and give some new people a chance to read some of Glenn's excellent content.

As for pages like Glenn's 'whitepapers' page, I am also planning to move those over and update the links.
Unfortunately, since the Sybase blog server no longer exists, I don't know of an (easy) way to set up automatic forwarding of the old URLs to the new ones.

FYI, we have most (if not all) of the whitepaper content moved over to SCN, and I am told that support is working on moving the technotes over. A better interface to these documents is needed, since currently all we have is a giant laundry list of documents, but at least they are there, and findable via search.

That's why Breck is still highly invited to dig in the coal doc face:)


@Jason: Thanks for explaining some aspects of the required and already finished work (and the expected hurdles). I'll look forward to more blogs to come:)
