The Weblog

Home for the heteronomous

A slight change

Due to inexplicable disk space overuse charges from my ISP, I have decided to move The Weblog to a Blogspot. The old address should now redirect to this one.

All previous links to The Weblog are now broken, because I have deleted all the files at the address. You may also have to resubscribe to the RSS feed. All those with posting privileges are able to post normally — publication will likely also be faster. (It seemed to republish the entire blog to the Blogspot server instantaneously, for instance.)

I’m considering moving to WordPress as well — the switch to Blogspot doubles as a necessary intermediate step should I decide to go that route. The only drawback is that their free accounts offer no control over the template, and you all know how much I love my design.

UPDATE: Obviously I’ve decided to take the plunge. I hope it’s not too disruptive to everyone’s life.

UPDATE 2: The biggest drawback is that all comments are effectively gone. You’ll just have to go to the Blogspot page and look up the appropriate post if you really want to read them. The benefit, however, is that WordPress’s clever moderation system means that I will never again have to hover over the internet to make sure the Troll of Sorrow’s posts are promptly deleted — they won’t make it through in the first place! For the rest of you, your first comment will be moderated (and subsequent ones might also be moderated if you fill in the form differently, etc.), but after that you’ll be good to go.

  1. Also, just for everyone’s information, I am turning on comment moderation on the old site. That means that comments are effectively turned off in perpetuity, as I don’t plan on checking it again from here on out.

  2. I’m also having difficulty getting it to recognize other authors. Maybe this was a huge mistake! OH NO!!!!

    Anyway, it was Brad who wrote the football post, and Adam R. who wrote about Publishing Genius, and Ben Wolfson who did the last Hatred.

  3. Are those other authors in the system?

  4. Dude – set up a weblog fund and we’ll all chip in inorder to give you the cash to do custom CSS on WordPress and return the Weblog to its former glories!

  5. This stresses me out, but just a very little bit.

  6. Change is sad. I feel lonely, and adrift in the world.

  7. Oh sure Adam. Moderate my comment. It’s like we don’t even trust each other anymore.

  8. I would be grateful to have this comment pass through moderation, so that, should I choose to comment again some time in the future, and should that comment somehow be pressing, I won’t have to sweat it out while you moderate it at that time.

  9. Wow, you’re still haunted by the Troll of Sorrow? You’ve got to give him points for determination, though, right?

  11. […] relative lack of comments, I wonder if his sudden and unannounced move—I didn’t even notice it at the time, but I was a wee preoccupied—didn’t lose him some […]
