It's been a while...

...since I last posted. It's not that I have nothing to say: I've been busy with other things but am now looking forward to some more space. The first priority though will be to sort out the site: it hasn't been upgraded in a while, and MovableType may not be for the future. (I have recently had tangential experience with WordPress, helping Kath post hints on Big Dave's Crossword Blog, and it probably won't be that either. Maybe Ghost, maybe Squarespace (though I think I'd still rather host my own). Dynamic, or static (like Dr Drang)? Shall I allow comments? Who knows? Much to ponder.

It's also been a while since I set up my trusted MacMini servers. The main server still runs Tiger: it hosts both Apache and the long-gone Userland Frontier. Fragile. Easily broken. The upgrade path is ephemeral: come on Dave, fix it for us in node.js!

Lots of work here.
