Following on from the previous post, here is the new URL to the RSS feed for this website: Again, sorry for the inconvenience.   Update: Well, this is awkward. This post showed up in both the old and the new feed, even though I turned off the old feed on the WordPress side. I […]

The short story: I am going to change the address of the RSS feeds for this site. And I am going to do it today, and then I will create another blog post saying that I’m done. This blog post will also contain the new URLs. If you do not see this second blog post […]

Twitter: Another new way of blogging

Things never get boring here at Intelligent Artifice. OK, actually, sometimes they do, but not right now is what I guess I want to say.

A new-ish way of blogging

Post-transfer observations

According to FeedBurner (owned by Google), subscribers to my feed dropped from about 375 to 85 since the transfer. Is anyone having trouble with the feed? My guess is both […]

Transfer complete

You can now reach this blog again through the usual URL (with or without ‘www’). The temporary URL at will disappear soon. There are still a few small issues to work out, but most of it is done now. I have changed hosting from TypePad to Dreamhost, blogging platform from TypePad to WordPress, and […]


Welcome to the new look of Intelligent Artifice. I have not fully set everything up, but I already like it a lot better. Feel free to leave feedback in the comments. And yes, cute little flowers have nothing to do with games. But I like the rest of the theme so much, I’m leaving it […]
