I just moved the blog here from its old home. I first thought of doing it some years ago: the annoyances of blogger are too many to list here, but the immediate motivation was the complaint, from a few posters on my previous post, that their comments were not appearing or were appearing in truncated form. However, no doubt I will discover the annoyances of WordPress as time goes by. Please know me of any quirks that you encounter!
The move comes at a time when my blog was, in any case, gradually changing its flavour. I originally intended it to be a bedtime activity (hence the name) and focussed largely on interests outside my work. But I find that quite a large number of my recent posts have been science-related, and even (indirectly) work-related, and it’s quite possible that the trend will continue. (So an additional motivation is that WordPress supports LaTeX natively!) However, I will try not to lose my old readers (and I don’t even know who many of you are!)
Anyway, the first “real” post here will, once again, be on science (and on Indian science in particular). After that, let’s see.
(ps – I have also copied over all previous posts, and comments, from the old blog, for completeness. However, formatting may be messed up, for comments in particular; but the old posts should be (and should remain) unchanged. I’m uncertain on what to do about new comments on posts on the old blog: perhaps I’ll block them.
