I was reviewing some of the statistics since ATW left blogger and moved onto this typepad location back in the Autumn of 2004. Since that date we have posted 7981 blogs for your edification. You have responded with an overwhelming 98,117 comments! (We almost made the 100,000th!) We were also approaching 1.4 Million visits...so it's been a real adventure over the past few years.
As the site has been growing I have found Typepad to be irritatingly unreliable from time to time, with far too many instances where I could not post a story due to alleged "maintenance" issues. Similarly, there have been glitches that create regular multiple postings and basically slow down the site. I will keep the Typepad site visible for a while, and plan to migrate all the posts and comments over to the new site shortly.
So - from first thing tomorrow morning, we will all move to our new home. I will re-direct you to it when you visit tomorrow - just unpacking the crates over there at the moment. We've mostly finished the decorating but you may have to forgive the smell of fresh paint when you come over tomorrow.
A sincere thanks for all your support on this platform over the years - but here's to the new tangled location - unveiled first thing tomorrow morning!
