I’m moving the site from to on Friday, May 24, so you may experience a little service disruption (which is why I’m relieved there hasn’t been an update yet). The move is about giving you and me a little more flexibility. While is great and simple to use, I need a little more flexibility (particularly with where things can be found) – and apparently I’ll be able to give regular commenters the ability to have their comments appear automatically without the need for me to manually approve each one.

There’s nothing you need to do and you shouldn’t really notice any difference after the move – all your bookmarks and the web address should still take you where you want to go. And I’m told the move shouldn’t take very long. Any delays will be at this end while I find my way around the admin end of the new home. There may also be a delay in moderating or responding to comments throughout Friday as I have to step away while WordPress’ Happiness Engineers take care of things for me.

Now watch EA release the Squidport expansion! right in the middle of the move!



In the last few hours, this blog passed 1,000,000 hits.

I’m amazed – I really didn’t think that would happen so soon. Thank you to everyone who visits and a particularly big thank you to everyone who visits regularly. As you know, my aim was to build a friendly, welcoming place for people who really enjoy the game, where you could ask any question you wanted to – and apart from a blip about a week ago, I think that’s been successful so far.

As regular readers know, I’m a single dad with two kids who fits this blog around a job and life. I travel a bit for work, so sometimes it’s written in an airport (for the couple of people waiting for a harp fix, that’s the reason for the delay – I should be able to get to you in the next couple of hours now that I’m home).

It’s been suggested by many readers that I add a button that lets you support this blog if you want to. I’ve been a bit reluctant to do that for lots of reasons, but here goes. Please note that this is entirely optional – everyone gets the same regular updates no matter what you choose to do!

If you would like to make a US$2.00 contribution to the upkeep of this blog, you can do so through PayPal, using this button:

Please remember that it’s all entirely optional.

Thanks again for your support – I really appreciate all your comments and questions.
