Due to a technical project, this blog is going in to “maintenance mode” for the next little while. Basically what this means from your perspective is that some things might not work as expected. At the end of it, the website should load more quickly and not have as many of the interesting little issues that it has had in recent times.
I was going to force comments in to the moderation queue during the maintenance period, but as I’m not sure how long it will take to complete the maintenance, and I will have to deal with some data inconsistencies later on anyway, I have decided not to bother. There will be a point in time when comments will be forced in to the moderation queue, but that will only be for a short period.
So, in advance, I apologise for any issues you have with the website during the maintenance period. Things should be much better once it’s all done.
