On leaving, I always meant to move to wordpress, but the need to say some things, particularly about the Digital Economy Act and the EU’s anti-competition review of the Oracle take-over of Sun Microsystems during the Autumn of 2009, led to me moving to Snipsnap on my Cobalt Qube. For various reasons, this site failed, and I started a 3rd blog here, using 1+1’s canned blog solution.
