Welcome to the new Manifold Press blog!

In view of the recent difficulties with LiveJournal - extended DDoS attacks and Cyrillic comments, amongst others - it seemed sensible to organise some sort of back-up facility.  As we've said in so many contexts before, we're constantly on a learning curve with Manifold Press, and this is just another new thing to learn (but we like what we've seen so far).  In fact we are seriously considering transferring operations over here permanently and producing our weekly update here rather than on LiveJournal, although we'll run the two in tandem for the time being and see how that goes.  However, the chances are that there will be many more DDoS attacks in LJ's future and we think it might be more convenient not to be around when they occur.
