A New Host for this Blog

Readers of this blog using my Feedburner feed

will notice no change but this blog is now hosted on WordPress.com and should feel more responsive if you visit it directly. If you are using a feed reader then you will notice very little difference.

I am looking forward to saving time on WordPress upgrades, comment spam checks (Akismet did catch over 8,000 spam comments on my old blog) and backup sessions. In addition I can now reduce my hosting costs by moving to a less expensive plan. Of course I am giving up direct control over themes, plugins and the like but I make very little use of these in any case.

With a little more time I should enjoy blogging all the more.
