A New Home

Home Sweet Home

Hello! Welcome to my new domain. After troubles with my other host I decided to move. I have just finished migrating my blog, comments and theme to this new server, which is all hosted under my domain name caperet.com. Now I have a couple of issues : redirecting traffic from the old site is no problem (a 301 redirect from the old server), but all the links that point to this blog are now being lost in terms of blog tools like Technorati and TTLB. I think I have TTLB sorted, as I have linked this new address to the old one, so the link at the bottom of the sidebar should update OK. I still haven’t looked at ways to sort out Technorati yet, but since I didn’t “claim” my old address so I don’t think there’s much I can do :-(.

If you link here, I would appreciate that you update to use the new domain www.caperet.com. Normal posting will be resumed shortly once I get my email sorted and explain to you why “caperet” is important (or not). Guess if you like, I’d love to see if any of you can work it out. There is a hint here somewhere that displays randomly; it’s pure chance as to whether you see it or not.

    Thanks for the comment, yes I did manage to move. I’m pleased to have my own domain and lots of email addresses, stuff like that. However losing my URL means losing some link popularity. Lucky I never had masses of visitors or I’d be upset :-D.

    [...] An Internet game based on the Tour de France last summer led me to write to a daily email review of results and standings. The means I chose to publish those emails to the web to have an archive readable online by all participants was the blogging platform WordPress. Soon the Tour was over, but I decided to keep going – I was enjoying the regular writing – and I launched this blog. 84 posts and 248 comments later, including a change in template and in hosting, it’s now 2006 and time to look back over some of those posts which you may have missed.
