I’ve been hinting a bit lately that change is coming to the Wyrmlog. Well today it’s arrived!
If you’re reading this on the old, iNews powered Wyrmlog (the one that’s all green) it’s the last post you’ll ever see here. Maintaining a custom blogging application may have given me almost 10 years of smug independence, but it’s become increasingly annoying as time has worn on. Added to that is the fact that I’ve never had the time to set up a robust commenting system, which in this Web 2.0, wired, user generated content world made the Wyrmlog even more irrelevant that it would otherwise undoubtedly be. So a few weeks back I decided to damn it all to hell and set up a spiffy, new, open source WordPress blog – the Wyrmlog 2.0!
(Actually it’s probably about 6.8 with all the revisions the old one went through, but hey, who’s counting?)
The old Wyrmlog will be maintained in it’s current location, although no updates after this one will be made.
So where can you taste the literary rainbow that is the new Wyrmlog? Here!
Now, the new Wyrmlog is still being set up. All the content (9 years worth! I’ve been spewing out this crap for 9 years?!) has been ported across but some of it (particularly the old stuff) is looking a bit dodgy. I’ve also got to get it all sorted properly into categories. The skin also needs a complete revision (what’s with that tree?) so don’t worry about the messed up menus up the top. But hey, it makes blogging a lot easier for me, and it has comments! Yes! Comments! Wow!
So yeah, it’s the start of a new era. Or something. Enjoy my children!!

I really like the new place you got here. Plenty of white space to rest the eyes and all those burning comments (not flames!) that we rarely could be bothered to email you can now be displayed for all the world to see. Nice work.

You could maybe do a Microsoft and call it wyrmlog 7. They weren’t counting either.
Thanks man, glad you like it! Don’t get too attached to the look though, it’s almost certainly going to charge radically.
I’ve settled in too now, so I’ll be reading and most likely commenting from time to time 🙂
Hey Mark, good to hear from you (a year to the day since Ali’s wedding too). I’ll look forward to your input.
Do you have a blog at the moment? If so I’ll link it in.
I hadn’t even realised I’d managed to do that! I don’t have one at the minute. I hardly ever updated the last one and it was kind of boring I reckon.
No probs, I only keep this blog up and running through sheer bloody mindedness combined with a profound desire to lecture people about things ;D
