Weirdly, my Gecko-based browsers (Camino and Firefox) are rendering this page completely screwed up. Webkit(safari) seems fine. Do any other users out there have difficulty seeing this page?
We’ve finally moved over to the new blog software system here at NKN. It took a little longer than expected, as I had to negotiate a bit to get some special stuff done for me. But I can finally get blogging again.
Just so you know, the blog software works pretty similarly, but you will have to provide a name and e-mail address, and I will manually approve the first comment made by anyone. This should reduce spamming, which was absolutely ridiculous on the old system. Also, I’m not a big fan of anonymous comments; if you won’t self-attribute, I’m under no inclination to accept your comments. Nor will you automatically get posted anyway.
I’ll start writing more again soon, although I admit that my dissertation writing takes much of my writing energy out of me.
A couple of you have offered to provide me with hosted space on your servers, and I still am quite likely to take you up on that. But I wanted to get this up and operational as soon as I could. (Yeah, orange person, I’m talking mostly to you.)
The server that Harvard law blogs uses for the older Manila blogs is creaky, prone to spam, and a variety of other problems. I’ve liked it and stayed with it mostly because it allows me to do more work under the hood than the new server does (using a version of WordPress that doesn’t allow the end user to do as much tinkering with code).
So I’ll be making decisions soon about what to do with my blog, whether to transfer to a new server here at Harvard Law or whether to get a bit of server space somewhere and go it on my own….
Regardless, you can always reach me, no matter what changes I make, by using www.nateknowsnada.org as the address you type in here. For those two of you who might use RSS to keep up with me, we’ll figure out some way of making that less painless than it might be.
