I greatly delight in the popularity of this blog, and hearing that people find it (and the things on my bombaxo website) useful. I appreciate all the comments and the links and all of the email I’ve received from all of you. Looking through my statistics for July, I was amazed to see the varietyContinue reading “My regards to my readers!”
My apologies again, everyone. I realized that my import of the correctly formatted unicode-compliant XML backup of my blog entries, comments, etc, actually created new page addresses so that all links to my pages were broken. How rude! So, I’ve reloaded a database copy with the right numbers (fortunately I’ve kept them), and will dealContinue reading “Ugh”
Well, I think everything’s fixed now. If anyone runs into anything unusual, please let me know. Here’s a tip for other WordPress users who are moving their blog from one site to another: backups directly from the database don’t work.

. . . because I’m busy.
You’ve all survived a year of this blog!
You might have noticed a slight change to the appearance of this blog, or will have found out through the rude mechanism of the xml feed disappearing on you (pardon me while I snicker!). There are links to RSS2 feeds for the Posts and Comments in the sidebar. Anyhow, like Tyler at Codex, I’ve changedContinue reading “Changes”
(Wow, is this thing actually working? Hello?) Okay. Welcome, reader, to my brand new blog, biblicalia.
