I Have Moved

I haven’t physically moved, only digitally. This site won’t be updated anymore. As of 03/05/11, all new content will be posted on my new self-hosted blog, Rocks and Roads. The general feel of the content will be the same, but I’ll have much more control over how it looks and feels. See you there.
