Time zones

Just noticed that my last post was a day ahead, I think because the machine hosting this blog is running on UTC. It looks like WordPress lets you put in a default time offset, which I’ve just set to -8 hours for PST. Let’s see if it works.  Update: It works!

A great place to take your kids while in the Bay Area: Lawrence Hall of Science. LHS is currently running a Dinosaur exhibit with remarkably lifelike animatronic dinos. The little ones had to be continually re-assured that “they’re just pretend”. The Hall is located in the hills up above Berkeley. I’d never been up there, it’s quite stunning, especially the view across the bay to San Francisco.

Relocation, part 2

Andrew Grumet’s Weblog has a new home and feed. The old URLs should redirect and continue to work. Let’s cross our fingers, praise Murphy and hope for no interruptions. Comments are back on, so feel free to leave a note saying it worked or didn’t work or anything else that doesn’t involve pharmaceutical offers, Nigerian bankers or low-cost loans 😉 The move went off pretty painlessly considering 3 years’ worth of content from Movable Type came with. More on that later — right now the garage beckons (we’re still unpacking). Many thanks to the creators of WordPress.
