New home

Apologies for any disruption you may have encountered in getting to the site over the last day. We have moved to a new server (again, courtesy of the lovely Tessa Shepperson of Landlordlaw, who very generously provides our hosting for free). The new server...

My jaw dropped at this post from Lo-fi librarian. You must see the post for lo-fi's screenshots. Also in the Times Online. Field Fisher Waterhouse have opened an office in Second Life. This is just wrong in so many ways. The media hype about 'real world'...

A useful thing

Entirely thanks to Enquiring Minds, I have found Feedity, which will turn a web page into a RSS feed where it lacks one. Given the lack of RSS feeds for all kinds of legal and government sites, this is a very useful thing if it works as advertised. I have...
