Hopefully, no-one noticed, but has moved from a virtual server I shared with a few people to a more usual hosting arrangement. Thanks to Lee H-W for giving me loads of time to move.

The move was straightforward: back up the MySQL DBs, copy the files over, import the DBs, change a couple of config files, bodge /etc/hosts to check it, and switch DNS while the 2 sites were a mirror of each other.

With another year passing, I’ve now been blogging for 8 years. There’s a lot more people blogging in Walsall and the surrounding area now, and many of them have real content, instead of the random rants and ramblings I come out with. There’s been some newcomers quite recently, which is nice, as blogging is often seen as ‘old hat’ now….

Best wishes for 2012.

Happy new year to everyone reading, both of you :-). I’ve just upgraded WordPress too.
