Nowhere Fast

by Quinn

Over the next few days I’ll be moving The Obscurer over from Blogger to WordPress. If you read this via a feedreader such as Bloglines, NetVibes or Google Reader then you may want to set the feed you subscribe to as feeds.feedburner.com/obscurer if it isn’t already, as that will survive the change. That will guarantee that you still receive this nonsense, although I will also be setting up a redirect so that hopefully the atom.xml and rss.xml feeds will also work come the day.

Otherwise the only real change you should notice will be a bit of a redesign of this site. The URL will remain the same as www.obscurer.co.uk, and all the old permalinks should still work, although the archives will be in a different format. Even better, the recent permalinks that have been broken in Firefox should be fixed; and indeed it is Blogger’s abject failure to make any effort to resolve this problem, or even to acknowledge my emails on the subject, that is the only reason I feel forced to make the move.

So, if over the course of the next few days you visit here and either the site is down or there is a strange error message, it will be because I will be hard at work, scratching my head and wondering what has gone wrong. It won’t be because I have jacked this whole thing in, and if you pop back the following day all should be as right as rain.

I hope.
