This Blog’s A Movin’

Random Things

IMS_Blog has a new home! Due to the fact I’m coming to the end of my PhD my university based web space won’t be around for much longer. Therefore, I’ve decided to start moving my personal pages off that space in preparation for that eventuality. The first thing to go, because it’s the most frequently updated and cross referenced, is my blog. So, IMS_Blog now lives at

Please update any links and bookmarks you may have. If you’re using the RSS or Atom feed to follow this blog please be aware that the URL of those is also changing. You probably will want to see these details.

As the blog is moving, so is the blogging system. I’ve out grown Blogger, wonderful as it has been to and for me. The blog is now run with a MovableType installation, which makes for whizzy new features (at some point in the not too distant future I’ll hopefully put up a post detailing the extensions I have installed and what they’re doing, but not right now).

I’ve imported all the posts, categorised them, and imported most of the comments.

The posts at IMS_Blog will be kept in sync for a month or so, if I can manage it, but after that there will be a brief pause before those pages simply redirect you to the new front page.

There’s still a bit to do with the new blog (the about pages need finishing, there’s no feeds for single categories, the markup is horribly unsemantic and the stylesheets bloated), but it should all be basically OK. If you notice anything too out of place, drop a comment into this post.

Where can I find out when this was posted?

Er, the original post was made on the 20th July 2004 at 19:28 UK time, as noted at the top. Comment #1 was made on the 23rd September 2004 at 00:23, as noted at the bottom of the article. The confusion is?

Just a note to say I’ve removed the URL link from the first comment as it was actually spammy, but I haven’t completely removed the comment due to the previous reference to it.

Markup allowed: <a href="" title="" rel=""> <em> <strong> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <p> <br />. Anything else is stripped; please be valid. Single linebreaks automatically convert to <br />, double to <p>'s. Additionally anything that looks like a bare URL should get automagically linked. Many acronyms and abbreviations are also automagically handled.
