Welcome to the new Mssv! The most obvious change is that the design is different (easier to read, I hope) and that all three weblogs have now been merged together. I’m glad I tried the four-year long experiment of three different weblogs, but ultimately it didn’t work due to the fact that I only have a finite amount of spare time and I wasn’t updating the main article as often as I wanted to. I’m optimistic that this simpler structure will see me writing much more.
There are a few other nice bits and pieces on the weblog, mainly to do with Search (it exists now) and Comments. On the old weblog, comments were a complete pain both for reader to post and me to moderate, but things should be much easier now. There’s also a Recent Comment box on the sidebar to the right. Unfortunately, I’ve still lost a fair number of comments from the old weblog.
Basically, what happened is that I ran out of space on my webhost, and as a result the comments database file became corrupted. This is no excuse for Movable Type, which continued to act oddly after everything had been fixed, and so I resolved to finally switch over to WordPress, a weblog engine that is under much more active development and is markedly more pleasant to use (although not perfect).
