Let’s move on

August 24, 2008

Hi all,

you may wonder why there has not been any news in the last week. Well … I have been busy in two fronts.

First I wasted the first half of the week with an old bad habit I got from from Microsoft Windows, even if I have been using Linux for a year now: clean re-install; I was having some slowdown with the Internet applications, especially Firefox, and World of Warcraft under Wine kept freezing my PC very often; so, instead of taking advantage of the wide configurability of Linux, that is very useful even when there are problems to fix, I decided to take the quick and dirty way to do a tabula rasa and re-install everything from scratch. So far everything is going very well (even if I did not had the time to stress-test WoW to check if it is working well as usual).

After this boring part I spent the second half of the week in a particular project: despite the promise to my self to wait and plan for this, I have impulsively opened a new site for this blog!!! It is now called “Silicon Gadget” and its address is: http://www.silicongadget.com/.

As you can see the overall look is identical to this blog, but I have indeed made some changes.

For example, and it is the aspect that took the most of the time, I re-organized a little bit the categories and the tags; this work has been necessary since I decided to change the URL format from the date-based system used here by WordPress.com to the category-based system I am using there.

The second change, that you cannot see since it is beyond the scenes, is that I activated several plugins that will help me to better manage the blog structure.

There is a very important thing you have to take in mind: if you subscribed to the RSS feed of this blog, either with a RSS reader or via e-mail, you have to unsubscribe from those and subscribe back with the similar links you find on the new site.

From tomorrow I will start to write exclusively on the new blog, but this blog will still stay open as archive and backup.

I want to thank both the WordPress.com staff and the forum’s members for all the help I received for this blog.

See you at the Silicon Gadget!!! 🙂
