Coming back after a long break

November 1, 2021


I just noticed I didn’t post anything on this blog for the past 4 years; while I alwa=ys wanted to do something about this, my blog setup isn’t that great for easy posting. Maybe I just need to make more of an effort.

A lot has happened in the past four years. I changed jobs – not by my own choice, as my previous employer, Artificial Solutions, decided to make everyone in the UK redundant without any notice, but I have fallen on my feet and ended up in a new role in a company (RavenPack) which is far more enjoyable and puts more emphasis on my real interests of linguistic analysis.

I’m still sailing, but not instructing that much anymore due to lack of time. And I’m going to give NaNoGenMo another try. And this time I intend to get a bit further than last time :)

And, because it would be too easy otherwise, I’m changing my blog. Not only a new theme, but also a new hosting location, as I can no longer remember how I added stuff to the github blog. So now I’m hosting it on my personal webspace. But hey, the new theme I have chosen doesn’t seem to support raw html in posts, so I need to re-visit all the old posts and make sure images etc are linked in properly. Ho hum.
