rycariad is moving home will be moving shortly. It's a headache for me but hopefully this won't affect any of my regular, loyal blog visitors.

Posterous has been hosting since its launch in 2008, but I've been blogging for at least 12 years or more, sometimes under different names. But since Posterous recently announced recently that they had sold out to Twitter, tens of thousands of frustrated Posterous users who use their service to host their blogs have been scrabbling to save their data to migrate to a new host or provider.

I have decided on a new, hopefully more reliable host in Wordpress, and all the content that already exists on will be migrated to Wordpress before the end of April 2013. This shouldn't be a problem for you and when I migrate the blog to Wordpress, you should still be able to find it by going to the usual site url and find everything on If you have problems with this after 30th April, let me know and use as a temporary workaround until I get the tech side sorted.

Thanks so much for following my blog, and for your continued loyalty and patience.


To read the official statement from Posterous on their acquisition by Twitter, see this:

In Flanders Field


In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields. 

~ John McCrae, 1915
