As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m in the process of setting up an alternate blog site, thanks to the growing threat of censorship and/or deletion on Big Tech blogging sites and facilities. To that end, the contents of this blog (including all the archives) are scheduled to be backed up and copied over… Continue reading No blog updates until Thursday
