7 September 2018 — William Bowles
I suppose I should have had an official announcement about the move — from the hosting company I’ve been using since 2003 — and the move to this WordPress-hosted site, so this will have to be it. But the site went ‘live’ today with the rerouting of the domain, which means the original site is now dee-funct.
Readers who know the old site, will be amazed at the difference in loading times, the new location positively flies along. It does have however, a number of limitations that I didn’t have on the self-hosted WordPress site (unless I upgrade to ‘Premium’). WordPress unfortunately is now monetising tools that used to be free. The ethos that got WordPress going in the first place is now fast disappearing. It also has something called ‘Happiness Engineers’, who are I assume, employees of the parent company which is I think is called Autommatic.
So, welcome to the new site, hopefully it will inspire me as well the readers to do something.
