We have moved

Since setting up the new website, I've migrated this blog over there, as well. There will be no new updates on this blog in this location - and honestly, there'll probably be very few updates on the blog in the new location as well, since I'm not very good at blogging.

But if you want to check and see whether there's anything new and exciting going on, from now on you can find us over here:
