Hmmm, this has been off for a while, hasn’t it.

My server (previously hosted in spare bedroom) died. “Fine!” says I. “To the free blog hosting!” If only it were that simple.

After looking at wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr and Posterous, I realised none of them would allow me to retain my existing URLs. All because I originally chose to install at happygiraffe.net/blog. Silly me. The free providers allow you to put stuff at the root of a domain only. Plus other restrictions made the choice inappropriate. So, it’s back to hosted wordpress.

Anyway, after some initial shenanigans with getting the backup restored, this blog should be back in business. Sorry about the outage.

P.S. Yes, URLs are important. Jeremy is putting his money where his mouth is. I sincerely hope he doesn’t win.
