Welcome to the new Strange Attractor

Posted by Suw Charman-Anderson

Yesterday afternoon, Strange Attractor migrated from using a very old installation of Movable Type to using a shiny new version of Wordpress. We’re very happy and excited that this has happened as it’s going to give us a lot more flexibility in the long run to install plug-ins and do cool things.

You might notice that things have subtly changed, e.g. there’s no preview button on the comments now, but hopefully you’ll find the site quicker to load, easier to comment on, and generally better in other ways that we haven’t quite figured out yet. The site may change more over coming weeks as we tinker with it. (The very fact that we can tinker with it makes Kevin and I very happy!)

Thanks to Hylton Joliffe and the team at Corante for making the transition so smooth!

    This would explain my dissappearing comments. I was not sure if my persistence in adding them would not make me an unwelcome guest that just keeps on knocking on the door.
