What was the arts & ego blog, which had replaced this tannoy blog, is gone. It was built on the content management system Drupal.
Drupal is overkill for just a blog. It’s designed for more complex activities than the occasional essay. When I installed it, I’d intended to use those features, but, apart from a mailing list, that never happened.
Furthermore, I had to update it every few weeks, when bugs were found and fixed in drupal itself. This necessary maintenance added nothing to the blog.
Anyway, the last update failed, and failed badly. It corrupted the database. I could have restarted by reinstalling drupal & restoring arts & ego, but I decided against that. Instead, I’ve restored this blog, the tannoy blog. I’ve incorporated all the entries from what was the arts & ego blog, so nothing’s been lost.
