Mass link changes in SharePoint 2010

I have been developing a SharePoint 2010 foundation site using SQL Server backend for a client that has about 400 links that point to my local server. This needed to be done for testing.  I now plan to move the entire site to the clients server and need to change pieces of these links to their client server name. I can of course use SP to edit each manually, but you know what that will take using SP's interface. I am looking for a way to do a mass substitution, either through SP or via query hitting the SP database tables directly. An example of the original link would be:


and I want to make it:


where the "myserver" is changed to "theirserver" for all links that have been defined.

Any suggestions?

These are hard coded links?  You didn't use a relative (/sites/clientworld) url?

Yes hardcoded. These links have to start up code another web on another server. To make it worse we are doing it in a framed environment. In any case, it is what it is.
