As promised, this site now has a blogroll on it.
Truth be told, I read more blogs than this. I’ll add more later. But now I’ve got the structures in place, that’s easy. … Read more about Drumroll for the blogroll

Just a quick post to state the obvious – I’ve given my blog an overhaul.
Technical details to follow later, but for now please leave me a comment to let me know what you think – especially if you have any problems.

I've just had to delete 280 spam comments, going back only a week or so. MovableType has an excellent junk comment filter - 280 comments got caught and marked as junk, and I only got notified by e-mail of 10 comments that were spam.

Movable Type (of which this blog is an instance) uses TypeKey for this. All you do is create a TypeKey account. You then sign in and have the option to stay signed in for a fortnight. You're then allowed to comment again. As a bonus, you only have to type your name once.
