I’m moving the site from WordPress.com to WordPress.org 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 WordPress.com 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!
