As usual, the redesign is actually a side-effect of upgrading to take advantage of better spam protection. One thing to note here: by default your comment will be held in a moderation queue unless you have previously had a comment approved, starting from last week. In common parlance, this means that your first comment probably won’t appear until I have authorised it as being from a genuine or near-genuine human being. Please don’t be put off.
To leaven an otherwise dull piece of administrivia, please enjoy the gayest pictures of Hadrian’s Wall imaginable, currently on display at News from Beyond the North Wind.
