Big news: Same USF blog, new address Friday



Exciting news for my loyal readers and their loyal bookmarks: This blog, having maintained the same URL since its humble beginnings back in August 2005, is getting a new home on Friday.

Sometime between 11 a.m. and noon, this blog will migrate from its current home -- -- to its new home at . (Don't go yet -- it'll say "Not Found" until they flip a switch).

We're tweaking more than just the address -- as a warning to women and small children, I'll warn that for some reason, my bald head is much more prominent at the top of the blog. Instead of a boring old list of categories, we'll have a "tag cloud," which is to say the point size for "football" will be slightly higher than, say, "food and drink" -- an actual blog category I've rarely used. It may not make it to the new home.

(Other actual Times USF Bulletin blog categories I'm thinking about letting go: Current Affairs, Film, Music, Religion and Science. I think I picked up Trivial Pursuit's luggage by accident on a road trip.)

The other thing -- and on a blog that's gotten 60,000-plus comments, it's a big thing -- we're requiring registration for blog comments, as we've done on most of our other Times blogs. I have a lot of great regulars on here, so hopefully you guys can take a short amount of time to set up an account. Very minor hurdle and hopefully we'll still have lots of great conversation here. Thanks again for making this a stop for you in the past five years.
