A Migration

The site has changed to a new format, as you can see if you’ve been here before. The main reason for the change is to eliminate, or nearly eliminate, the problems that have often made the site inaccessible in the past.

This site lives on free server space, and one can hardly complain about the price. But the database connection, which is necessary to run WordPress, has always been slow and unreliable. As WordPress grows in capability, the creaky servers struggle more and more under the weight of it, and visitors see more and more errors.

Moving to Flatpress, which does not require a database, will make the site load almost instantly. All the articles have been transferred, with their original publication dates noted, and comments that had been made on the original site printed at the end of each article.
