As posted over on the main blog, some URLs are being changed "right under your noses . . . right under your feet". (sorry)
If you have the static quotes site bookmarked, it's changed from "www.quotulatiousness.ca" to quotes.quotulatiousness.ca.
The main blog URL remains the same for now, but may be changing to something a bit shorter (eliminating the "bolditalic.com" portion), provided that I can successfully install a new version of MovableType at the new ISP. I'll post progress reports if/when that appears imminent.

Still a few CSS and directory path issues, but I think we're mostly back.

He'll port over all the newer posts from the old site and then upgrade the MovableType blogging software to the next major release. If that works as expected, then he'll port it to the current version. Once that's done, we can update the DNS entry for the site and it should (within 24 hours) appear at the usual URL.
If worst comes to worst, I could just start over again at the new ISP and hope that the archives would eventually become available.
When a rash of gun murders takes place, it makes sense for the police to do one of two things: renew tactics that have been effective in the past at curbing homicides, or embrace ideas that have not been tried before.
But those options don't appeal to Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis. What he proposes is a crackdown on assault weapons.
I'm tempted to say this is the moral equivalent of a placebo—a sugar pill that is irrelevant to the malady at hand. But that would be unfair. Placebos, after all, sometimes have a positive effect. Assault weapons bans, not so much.
If there are too many guns in Chicago, it's not because of any statutory oversight. The city has long outlawed the sale and possession of handguns. It also forbids assault weapons. If prohibition were the answer, no one would be asking the question.
