You might have noticed that I’ve retired the old sketch that’s adorned this site since the early days and replaced it with something a bit more generically wallpaper-like. I’ve just upgraded the hosting plan for this site, which is something I’ve been meaning to do for some time, and I’m currently playing with the widgets and settings to spruce the place up a bit.
The big advantage for any visitors to this neck of the woods is that it abolishes the adverts that occasionally crop up at the bottom of my posts and pages. I’ve never liked them there and considered them a necessary evil to support the site until now. I also am wary of the feeding of content onto the site that I haven’t had any control or insight into – if only down to the horror stories of advert affiliation schemes getting co-opted for drive-by malware attacks.
So – all the old content, no ads, and a bit more freedom and storage space for me to develop the site. It’s almost like a spring clean I suppose.
