Welcome to the new blog

Or, rather, the old blog in a new place. I hope you like the new look; I think it’s now pretty much set up as I want it, but if you spot any glitches, let me know. I managed to import all the old posts, which was a minor victory (I’ll spare you the techy […]

possible hiatus

Frustrated by the frequent downtime at Freezope, I’m shifting my site, starting with this blog, to a new location. This involves moving from Squishdot, a Zope-based piece of blogging software, to WordPress (php/MySQL based).

all about me

To be more accurate: not very much about me. I’m Harry Rutherford. I write poetry as a hobby – hence the blog and the wiki. I’m also a mod at PFFA. Other interests that might surface while I blog are food and birding. Or, they might not – who knows what I’ll feel the need […]
