New Build Blog

Thanks to Brigid for news of her new blog. The blog follows the destruction of the family home, and the build of a new eco-friendly replacment. You can follow it at Blog My Ecobuild. The pictures are all hers, although I hope to visit in April when she predicts an exciting time. Link added at the side

Last Tuesday they saw the bungalow being dismantled...

and this week it has been taken away.

By the way, this blog will be changing before the deadline of March 26th. Blogger are removing support for the way I have been doing it up to now (using FTP). They say "only .5% of active blogs are published via FTP — yet the percentage of our engineering resources devoted to supporting FTP vastly exceeds that. " In other words, more trouble than we are worth. So I will be forced to find another way - a new build.

As long as you keep up the blogging - it's must-read for all the family (even the bits of it that are in York and North Carolina!)

Technical one this.. Blogger has moved on, and already I regret that I can't use some of the new gadgets they have created because I decided to stay in control and host it myself three years ago. So I will see if there is a way to move forward with them and get the new gadgets while keeping the domain as . If not all the old stuff will be still here unchanged, as an archive, and new stuff will be published using a different tool with a fresh new look. Any recommendations? I will be looking at wordpress.

I moved to Wordpress last week and am loving it.

You can import your entire blogger blog directly into Wordpress - including old posts.

It was surprisingly easy.

I'm currently redesigning the local Abbey Baptist Church website and we're hosting that ourselves using the wordpress engine. It take a bit of getting used to, but is excellent overall - and works with FTP.

I'm using a Commodore 64. It works fine, and I'm just typing in code for a game of noughts of crosses.
