Site Update

I’ve moved the site over to a new server, hopefully I managed to bring everything along intact. If anything appears to be broken, do let me know in the comments below.

As part of the move, I’ve upgraded my version of WordPress, and switched to the standard twentyeleven theme for now, just to keep life simple. I’ve been fairly lax in my posting habits again just lately, but there’s been an awful lot going on – I’ll post a general roundup later.

New Look, Tidy Up and a Gratuitous Photo

I’ve been having a bit of a clear out. I’ve removed an assortment of old stuff from the web site that few people ever looked at. If you find your favourite Greasemonkey scripts now missing, then I’m sorry. I don’t really use Firefox any more and so am not actively maintaining those scripts. If you’re desparate, you can still find some of them over on, but as I said, they’re no longer being actively maintained.

We also have a nice new look to go with the clean sweep. I’ve de-cluttered and got rid of the sidebars, and added my latest flickr photos to the top of the page to brighten things up a little. ¬†There’s still some tinkering to do, but it’s starting to settle down now.

And finally, a gratuitous photo:


Let it Snow

It’s grey and wet outside, so let’s have some snow to brighten the place up a little. The snow is only on the front page, so if it annoys you, just click on a link to another page, or click on the “Stop Snowing” link over to the left. Or just click here

New Server

Over the weekend, moved to a new home. Previously, it shared a home with a couple of other fairly heavily used web sites and applications, so I’ve now moved it to a new server.

The DNS updates were made yesterday afternoon and by now everyone should be seeing the new site.

I’ve also taken the opportunity to have a bit of a purge and a tidy up. There’s a new look and feel, which I expect will continue to evolve, a lot of the old, stagnant content has been stripped out, and a new WordPress blog put in its place.

Most of the software tools and applications remain in place, just where they used to be.

If you notice anything awry, or anything I missed that remains broken following the move, do let me know.
