Server transition completed
After a bit more than a week the transition of this webpresence to the new servers has finally been finished. The new server is a lot faster than the old one as far as I have experienced it. I have now also reenabled the comments again and replaced the old, partly hand-written, spam-check with Jay Allen's comment challenge plugin which adds a text-based check to filter out spam-bots. Furthermore all of the publishing problems I've experienced on the old server seem to be gone now :)
If you experience any problems or inconsistencies, please let me know in the comments.
