The cake is not a lie!

I had an excellent birthday, thank you to everyone who has sent me birthday wishes! Leela and I went around exploring a bit more of the Cotswolds on Sunday, and on my actual birthday on Monday we went to the ever-awesome Cotswold Wildlife Park. When we got back, Leela had made me a birthday cake:

Hello, new server

Everything seems to be running just fine on the new server, and even all of my personal sites are back up. Well, almost all; some of the old ones I haven't touched for years and I don't want to keep going, so I took the opportunity to spring clean my domains and drop them.

They were mostly insignificant so I doubt anyone will miss them, but at this time of year at least one person always asks me for the TCMI, which was until this weekend over at Most of those scripts were about 10 ...
