Warning: This post was published more than 10 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 10 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- Factual information might be outdated.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.
This site has been sjhoward.co.uk for a long time – almost three years, in fact – and was simonhoward.co.uk for four years before that. But in all this time, whilst the site’s name has not included ‘www’, the default URI has done. From today, that has changed.
The site is now truly sjhoward.co.uk, with www.sjhoward.co.uk being deprecated. The latter URI will work, but will now redirect to the former automatically. This change is mainly for cosmetic reasons – it brings the site’s name better in line with it’s URL – though there is also a technical argument for the change as well.
All subdomains remain the same; election.sjhoward.co.uk still accesses stuff from Election 2005, tsunami.sjhoward.co.uk still accesses the posts about the 2004 Tsunami, and mobile.sjhoward.co.uk still gets you to the mobile version of the site.
It’s not the most significant change in the history of the world, but it’s probably worth noting.
