And so it starts.

Somewhere out there, on a server in South Africa lives my website.

The front page

The front page

It has existed in some form or another since I put up my first attempts in 1997 and has survived numerous changes, additions, deletions and changes of mind. It has served me well and I have used it as a repository for much of my writing, research and thoughts. Unfortunately though, I have found that it has pretty much reached the point where I no longer need it or use it as much as I used to. Experimenting with the blog platform has convinced me that this could be the way to go from here.
I have toyed with shutting it down for awhile, especially since I moved to the UK, much of the content on it can be adjusted to the blog platform, and some stuff like galleries etc can just be made redundant.
I intend moving stuff from now on to here, in an effort to see what can be accomplished. In order to avoid duplication I will probably delete much of the content on the website as I go along, some stuff will not be making the transition, while some material will be adapted to the change. Watch this space! (whatever it is called).
Because of the spam problem I have turned all comments off. Sorry but I am not going to spend my life blocking spammers, I would rather they don’t get the opportunity in the first place.
