New site

Regular visitors will have noticed that the old site was getting slow and unreliable, with some pages inaccessible, even though (I promise you) they were still there.

After quite a bit of research, I've decided to move to a new platform, and from now on you should find the site behaves more predictably.

It will take a while to restore all the stuff I had on the old site (all the pictures seem to have disappeared, for example), but in a few days you should find it's all back to normal (ish).

Thanks for your patience.
