Just a reminder that we've moved

I continue to keep this blog up for various reasons (it still turns up in internet searches, and some posts at the new place link back here), but if you want to see the new content, please come over to the WordPress location. From time to time I may post links over here, but my ability to do that has been very limited as of late.
