Updated Blogs

Hi to everyone who has followed this blog and my other blogs (Living With Linux and my Development Blog) for a while. The Living With Linux blog is now redirected to the Linux category on this blog and the development blog redirected to the Development category.

For a long time I’ve been meaning to consolidate the blogs into a single blog and move the main blog from Blogger to WordPress.

Well, that has now happened so welcome to the new, updated blog.

There may be one or two missing posts and some missing comments but I will fix that as time allows.

I also intend to move back to using Disquss for comments which I think gives a much better reader experience and reach.

So hopefully, I’ll be more inclined to make better use of the blog again now and I will be trying to bring together not only the larger posts on this blog but also my short posts on Twitter and Diigo in a more consistent and coherent form.

Quick test of new comments system (using DISQUS)

Just testing a new commenting system – Disqus.

Looks like it works OK so I’ll keep it online for now. Currently, you no longer need to be logged in (previously you needed to present either a Blogger, Google or OpenID credential to comment because of spam) since Disqus is supposed to handle this better. However, if the spam starts to reappear, I’ll have to restrict it again.

For blog authors, check out Psolonoid as well. It provides an easy and controlable way of creating links (like trackbacks) between blog entries.
