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- Factual information might be outdated.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.
I’ve changed the archives to the Weekly sort, as the monthly sort were becoming somewhat overloaded of late, and difficult to navigate because of their size. The downside to this is that some archive pages now only contain one post, which looks rather strange. But at least you can more easily find what you’re looking for in the archives.
And, on the subject of finding what you’re looking for, I’ve tweaked the search engine so that’s it now reindexes the site rather more often (it’s now indexed most days – at around 2am – whereas it was previously done weekly), and will only produce the individual post pages as results (so you won’t get two results for each post any more – one for the weekly archive page, and one for the actual post page). I’ve adjusted the weightings, too, so that the ‘Work’ sections of the site are likely to come near the top of your results, and any of these blog postings are likely to come nearer the bottom.
There are other tweaks here and there too, but those are fairly self-explanatory, such as the “Email this Post” link, and the greater range of Feed formats.
I hope you find the changes useful! If you think I could do anything else to improve the organisation of this place, then please let me know.
