New Website -- new blog!


The new site is close enough to ready that I'm jumping headlong in and launching it today.

You'll find it at ... same site as my old website, but a brand new [spooky] look.

It's taken WAY longer than I thought it would to get the thing up and going, mostly because we changed servers along with content and style, but I'm pretty happy with the result.

Now -- I'll also be blogging through that location. Yep, we're retiring the old blogspot, after all these years. I started blogging here in 2005, and it's been a fantastic location for me. But if I move my blog over, I own the content if push comes to shove, rather than it being in the more nebulous possession of, and that makes me feel a little safer in this age of who-knows-what's-coming-next-in-digital-rights-management.

For the next month or so, I'll put up a wee notice here when I have a blog post to share, directing you to the right place. But if you have a reader, feel free to to change my blog address right now to .

If you go straight to the site, just knock on the door of the spooky house to find the blog. [There's a teaser on the front page at the bottom...and a teaser of my twitter feed on the right-hand side, too]

And today on the blog? I can promise you DOLPHINS! [Okay, so it's not unicorns, but I think this post is even better...!]

Next week, once I have the latest opus in the can, I'll be having a new website celebration contest. Details soon!

Now, how about a peek at those dolphins? HERE!

Website Woes...

...will not last for long. We've got the template complete and ready to go, but have switched servers and the conversion is taking longer than I thought. I have high hopes for this week!

In the meantime, a couple of things that made me go hmmmmmmm.....

First, [from Americablog via boingboing] several astonishing photographs of the deepwater oil rig Horizon, as it crashes and burns, creating what is now being called the worst oil spill disaster ever off the coast of Louisiana.

And one of the many black humour-based responses, this one apparently from Twitter via HuffingtonPost:

BREAKING: Large Air Spill at Wind Farm. No threats reported. Some claim to enjoy the breeze.

[hat tip to Interesting Finds for the pic] .

And, to finish, in more literary news...a happy ending to the Dr. Peter Watts story. Via
Fist in the air for Peter!

More soon...
