This post marks the moving of my blog to a new server; in that when it appears on my blog, the DNS will have propogated, for me at least.

I’m about to move my domains to a new server, and I couldn’t help notice that 3 of them are shifting a large amount of data, which I couldn’t explain.

There is not a week go by that I don’t get email via my website from some charlatan wanting to boost my website’s listing on Google. Even with spammer detection in place, they still manage to get through. It has now got to the point…
