Formerly known as…

If you look carefully, there is a small change on the site. A clue is in the header to this post. I (NL as was) have decided to write under my real name. After nearly 7 years of pseudonymity, I thought ‘what the hell’, and it isn’t as if it isn’t widely known anyway. So, I mention this just to avoid confusion. That said I may retain the NL moniker for certain kinds of post, by way of upholding tradition.

    as you say, we all know the situation and if it means that you or the blog itself gain added respect, well that would be entirely deserved. and it shows that you are fully accountable and stand by what you write.

    Woo it’s like that moment in Spiderman 2 where his mask comes off, and all the passengers on the train discover superhero Spiderman, is a young Peter Parker. Keep up the good work GP.
