Politics&P2P Turns 5

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 5 years since I finally decided, ‘yes, I should really start writing things down‘. So 5 years, and 269 posts later, here we are. To commemorate this, I decided that it’s finally been long enough and I should fix some of the issues with the site. Most of the fixes have been in the back-end, but most of you will have noticed one thing – the black-themed layout is no more.

Yes, for all my talk of disabled access, and so on, I’ve had a site that has been rather unreadable for a lot of you, for a fairly long time. Well, no more. Of course, it’s by no means finished either, but with the backend changes, it does mean that I can now fix most of the problems, and make the layout much easier to read.

I’d also like to just share another little tidbit, and that is that over the last 5 years, there’s been over 240,000 hits. For a site that’s mainly my ramblings, is infrequently updated, and has moved a few times (from wordpress.com to blogger, then from blogger to my own domain which later became self-hosted), I want to thank those that have stuck with me. Part of the reason for this change is also personal. Those that know me personally, are aware that over the last while, I’ve had significant personal issues, many relating to my home of the past 6 years. Well, now they’ve been mostly resolved, and I’m in a much better personal space, and thus a much better head space, and while I’m not out of the woods yet, things have certainly started looking up.

So, all I will say is, here’s to another 5 years, and the changes that will come then!
