Server trouble

My server has been going up and down like Polly Toynbee's knickers at a Labour Party Conference.

Apologies to those whose sites are there hosted: I suspect that the current problems are related to the migration to the new data centre, but I am going to be tracking down the suppliers and giving them gyp on Wednesday anyway.

In the meantime, if any of you find that the images on this site are not displaying, or that assorted blogs are unavailable, then you know that the damn thing's down again and I am struggling manfully with the controls...


I thought it was all those updates you mentioned a while ago. Ah well.
On an unrelated note, I'm attempting to give blogging a go. Problems:
1. I've never done it before.
2. I'll probably not keep it up.
3. I have a bloody awful banner on the top.

I'll give it a shot, though. It will probably fail.

Right, thank you, DK, for giving me yet another unwholesome image to carry in my mind as I finally get to bed.

Polly Toynbee's knickers coming down? I have work in 10 hours and somehow, I don't think I'll find much refuge in sleep tonight.

Panopticon Britain, I thought for some reason that 'Panopticon' was something to do with Doctor Who.

But then, I'm a 37 year-old nerd with a failing memory!

Anyway, welcome to blogging! At least you're being yourself; I was once going for the satire type thing and was pretending to be a maniacal islamic fundamentalist before I got bored of updating the blog.

It didn't last long really, although I might feel like reviviving it some time.

I am sure you will be carrying on doing your job of steering this (excellent) blog through World-wide severe server choppy waters.
You haven't stuck all the info on a memory stick and lost it have you, our dear Devil?

Oh! I thought it was a new simplified appearance so examined it carefully and decided it was shit.

Did not like the absence of that little bugger with the knife at the top.

Welcome back.

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
