barefootbum.com

The new self-hosted blog is up: The Barefoot Bum at barefootbum.com.

I'm not fully committed yet, so don't go changing your links yet. I won't be posting at the new site until I've looked everything over and become convinced its an improvement. The series on Ayn Rand and Atlas Shrugged is still taking shape in my head.

Even with db0 doing most of the work (thanks!), migrating is a non-trivial process. I don't recommend it unless a) your free system (Blogger or Wordpress.com) is limiting you or b) you enjoy messing with technical stuff for its own sake.

The top issue right now is figuring out the commenting system and migrating the IntenseDebates comments to the new site.

If you're reading the blog on an RSS feed, please use Feedburner: The Barefoot Bum RSS. It'll be automatically redirected to the most up-to-date site.

Post a Comment

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
