Yes, I know. The si-blog has been rather quiet of late. Please accept my apologies if you are a regular reader.
Behind the scenes, I have been working feverishly on the new site, which I now expect to launch in about 2 weeks. I have encountered certain technical problems, mostly related to how I deal with comments. Rather than delaying the new version still further, I will probably deploy with commenting disabled; however, all existing comments will be available.
I have solved the problem of legacy pages. Old entries will be available with both the existing URL scheme, and the new one. I will probably disable the ability to post comments on all of the older pages, just to warn you.
Finally, the new version will be deployed at the same time as a change of server. I cannot access the MySQL database of the new server until propagation is complete, so expect the dynamic aspects of the si-blog to be down for a day or two.
