  • Interruptions May Be Incoming (Update 3am, Update 6am)

    The process of changing site name has started.  So, interruptions may happen during the DNS changes – chances are slim but we could have hitches.  I will make announcements on the TG channel if necessary.

    You don’t need to do anything – you will see the new URL appear as it completes its DNS propagation.  (This…

  • Small Tech Note

    Generally people are trying to get to terms with The Hearty Salon.  It is a forum style, and not a flat page that needs to be taken away every now and again, because it gets too full.  I’ve changed one of the topics there to Testing and Messing and will leave that one up until…

    What happened is that I am now part of an economic discussion with some heavy economists about the structuring of the new multipolar world.  The…

  • The time has come, the walrus said (update)

    I do trust today’s technical work will not do this to any oyster:
    O Oysters,’ said the Carpenter,
          You’ve had a pleasant run!
    Shall we be trotting home again?’
          But answer came there none —
    And this was scarcely odd, because
          They’d eaten every one.”

    We’re on the verge of implementing a decent commenting system.  They tell us that the old commenting…
