A New Thing – a.k.a. The Resurrection Shuffle

About a million years ago, I used to blog almost daily.

Then life became more interesting, I spent more time living life than blogging about it, and blogs reduced in frequency. Then about four years ago, 34sp – who own the server that GottleBlog lives on – wrote and told me that they were shutting me down until I’d installed an effective spam comment blocker, because GottleBlog was getting so many spam comments it was affecting their service.

And sorting THAT out went on my to-do list, and kind of stayed there.

But then last week, I was looking for some information that I knew I’d blogged about at some time. So I tried a few Google searches, thinking that even though GottleBlog was inaccessible, one of the sites that archives old websites might have mirrored it. And that’s how I discovered that at some time in the last four years, GottleBlog had once again been activated.

I’m not going to try to do a monster update: Suffice to say that PF and I got married and are happier – and more ludicrously loved-up – than ever. I changed jobs a year ago and now work for the NHS, which contributes even more to my happiness, and still do ham radio and hospital radio. I even geocache occasionally, although nowhere hear as much as I used to. And I have a new passion in the form of cycling, as a result of which I’ve finally managed to lose a sensible amount of weight.

So, GottleBlog is back. Comments will stay switched off for the time being – if you want to respond, please comment on the Facebook post which I suspect brought most of you here!
