A huge thanks to Gordon K who has spent most of the day upgrading the blog to the latest version of Movable Type. This won’t solve all the problems with freezes as that will continue until we get a more grunty server (should happen within a fortnight). A lot of the problems have been trackback spam.
The blog design has defaulted to the standard. Some of the extra sidebar features I will add back on manually. But this is an opportunity to tinker with the design so give me feedback as to anything you liked from the old site, and anything you want different on this site.
