Yes dear readers, at last it has come to pass, the new site is getting onto its feet and so it is time to do this moving thing. So this Monday 10th May marks the end of the beginning, a week from now (Monday 17th May) new posts will not appear here, they will appear at:-
Yes you can go and have a look, grimace in horror and carefully ensure you don’t update your blogrolls, or… you could, that would be nice. The plan (such as it is) is that this site remains here, all the posts intact so links etc still work and -clickable- notice of the new site will be in the sidebars to inform casual readers of the move. On the new site the entire blog will be reproduced (just some niggling missing posts and comments to figure out, damn my over 2mb xml file!) and from May 17th it will be the live site where new posts appear. It is hosted in far off lands thanks to an excellent friend of the blog, beyond the easy reach of UK libels laws and if some eejit has a problem with it they can no longer send a lawyers letter/email to WordPress and they immediately defer to that threat rather than think about it and contact me. Over-privileged numpties with an itchy lawyer finger will have to deal with me directly, y’know like in a civilised open way. So even if the new government is not much to look forward to, then there is a least this change you can believe in. Oh and if I can persuade ‘it’ the HAL 9000 supercomputer will be making an appearance in a special video…

Does The Daily Mail still run its annual “moving house is one of the most stressful activities known to man” articles?
Good luck. I’ll come over for a cup of sugar when i see the tea chests getting loaded back on the lorry all empty like.

If they work in Gordon Brown having a temper…
Thank you, you are most welcome to avail yourself of any sweetening consumables I may have about the place.

You’re certainly a very accommodating blogger! Hope the move goes smoothly.
10 May, 2010 at 12:30 am
Thank you, I hope you will drop by whenever you feel like it, don’t be a stranger. It may be beyond the technology at the moment but when it is possible the blog will offer complimentary tea and biscuits beamed directly out of the screen!

Good, tea is always welcome. I haven’t had a decent tea maker in my vicinity for a long while.
10 May, 2010 at 12:44 am
They make tea with hot milk round here. I try to tell ’em but they just won’t listen.
And they can’t speak English very well. If they want me to spend my money in their bar they’ll have to learn a bit more respect than that.
And they all look the same.
And they smell of garlic.

Powdered milk in Thailand. Doesn’t work.

Will the biscuits be branded or value?
10 May, 2010 at 1:06 am
Branded except where own brand is better (ie co-op jaffa and ginger bics are very nice I think). But it’s all in the hands of the engineers, the screen beaming system might only accept a certain thickness of chocolate etc.
10 May, 2010 at 1:14 am
Hmm, I have a feeling that engineers would be particularly fond of Hob Nobs, as am I.

Maybe you can make our keyboards release biscuit vapours that make us more suggestible.
10 May, 2010 at 8:05 pm
Oh that tech already exists and of course I am using it, here get a waft of plain choc and ginger biscuits (vegan). Now email your credit card details….
10 May, 2010 at 2:41 pm
Oh bleedin’ ‘eck. I only added you to my links a few days ago, now I’ve got to go back in and re-edit.
Some people. No respect. Kids today. No respect.
10 May, 2010 at 8:09 pm
Well thanks for doing that and sorry for the inconvenience. I am hanging around in a hoody by the offy playing music with words that don’t mean anything and sounds like noise even as I type this. Ooh look a pensioner, now where’s my knife, if only that nice David Cameron was prime minister I’d be a responsible member of society and get a job as a solicitor at a nice big oil corporation or something. Oh my evil political correctness gone mad, leftwing ways!

Good luck on the move. Britannia needs a new voice!
12 May, 2010 at 1:13 am
Thanks Rafael, who knows where Britannia will be going but yes maybe now it just got more crucial to keep the chorus of dissent and truth to power going. Especially as the UK blogosphere has been led by tories I think because officially that was the opposition and party politics is what the media like to promote, well now that’s changed…
