For quite a while we wanted to move away from Blogger, Google, and all other companies spying on you and us. The Facebook page died a while ago. The twitter account was pretty much abandoned too.
According to orders from top management, aka Saint Glynsky, we will move on
Sunday the 23rd of June
We will find ourselves a new host for the domain, glynskyandpete.com, leaving Google, which currently provides hosting.
We will leave Blogger, a Google subsidiary, which currently provides the content management system, and use the Free Open Source Software WordPress.
We will leave Gmail, again a Google service, so they cannot spy on our email, and yours, if you happen to write to us.
What does that mean for you?
While in transition on Sunday, diablog might not be available all the time.
I apologize, should you encounter downtime. If it happens, check
where diablog will be hosted during the moving.
The layout of diablog might look a bit different on Sunday.
We will work to make it look as similar as possible. Why?
Because Pete likes it the way it is. And he is the Chief Officer of design, layout, look-and-feel, everything visual at diablog.
You will find it much easier to comment in the future, no more captcha.
Smiles and Elsbeth have been complaining for ever about that.
Other features will be introduced over time, WordPress has a gazillion of those.
In case you know of a great one, you would like to see here, just let us know, please.
I better start packing.
