So where's everything gone?

Radio started to eat my posts. Apparently it's a bug. Anyway, I've got the posts back and they're stored in an archive. But this is the sort of thing that causes people to switch blogging tools, and I have. I've quickly upgraded my hosting package, and I'm now using the much loved Movable Type. Thanks to Dr Plokta for installing it for me, in about three minutes flat. I think it would have taken me several hours.

Changes to the default layout may happen. Archived Macadamia posts should still be here. I am importing the 2003 posts, including the chewy half-eaten ones , and they will appear, complete with their comments, below. It does not appear to be trivial to edit the time and date stamps on comments, however, so they'll be wrong.

Should you happen to subscribe to my old rss feed, you won't get any updates. The new feed is here instead. Just a different default setting.

Glad you've resolved your "blog home" problems

(and it's nice it's still the same (apparent)


Is it a necessary property of the pages that they

come out so wide? (I'm using IE on NT, and not doing

anything at all special). There's the column of

"useful things to prod" down the left, and your

text on the right, and I'd really rather not have

to scroll to see the whole lot...

I don't know. I am using the Movable Type default settings. I will work on it; obviously I don't want to require horizontal scrolling. Comments from other readers welcome. It all looks much better on the Mac than on my Win2K PC here at work, too. And Steven complains that on one of our home PCs, the left hand column doesn't display properly in either IE6 or Opera.
