Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
As even the least observant of my readers must have noticed, I’ve moved over to a new blogging system (WordPress). There were a number of reasons for the change, the foremost being the ability to host absolutely everything on my own server.
The new design has now finished being implemented
(though not through the static part of the site, only as far as the blog itself), and the whole post archive has now been uploaded. There should, therefore, be no major interruptions to service from this point onwards. Touch wood.
But notice all the advatanges of the new system – the search engine automatically searches every single post (no more waiting for re-indexing), and posts appear instantly instead of being delayed by a couple of minutes. This version also has better cross-browser compatability, and built-in Trackback.
I hope you enjoy the new system, and will keep on visiting the site regularly; if you have any questions or comments, feel free to get in touch in the usual way.
Update: 29th January 2005
The new design is now implemented on the static pages as well as the blog.
