I’ve made some changes to this weblog. I’m strutting into the brave new(ish) world of Web 2.0, which is difficult, since it doesn’t exist yet – more to follow in a future post on that point.

RickyRobinson.id.au and The Thin Line have been moved off the computers in my bedroom to a real webhosting service. There’s a number of reasons for this.
