Various things

Archives have grown a bit

More blog articles have migrated from the old to the new (that’s here) blog. They can all be found in the Archives section.

But if you find this blog, having expected to end up at (first of all: WELCOME!) … is no more! Well, it still sort of exists technically, but all visits are being redirected to this place here. Google Analytics allowed me to identify the most frequently accessed articles and I moved them over. So if you go e.g. to you end up right at If you go to an article which has not (yet?) been migrated over, you land right at the main page.

However, most articles are much older than “Dolphins in the sky”. Most of them date back to 2005-2006.

So their purpose is often to maintain a piece of history. Sometimes they can still be useful.

Some of them will be:

… so far, not much new and most posts which go into one category will go into the other as well.

Further categories that I’m thinking of are:

If you had my old blog bookmarked or had linked to it on your blog or site, please add or update the bookmark or link to my new blog. And if you have not done so far, why not do so now?

Welcome to my new home!
