First – the important stuff.
I was unable (or I screwed up, one of the two) to move the email subscriptions when I moved the blog.
They are handled by a different server (and I have more excuses if you want them).
In order to receive my blog via email you need to scroll down until you see this in …
I while ago I came to the decision that striving for perfection regarding stuff on the internet is fruitless.
I decided that I could live with ‘good enough’.
Moving this blog to WordPress is finished.
I’m waiting for a file from TypePad with (hopefully) all the missing photos on it.
In the meantime, I declare the hard work …

My favorite line: In answer to the question ‘Is he dead?’ was, ‘No, only mostly dead.’
My blog was with Typepad for over 7 years.
I’ve thought about moving it in the past but it’s not an easy project.
The way photos are stored at Typepad makes it extremely difficult to move them. What …
