As you can see, the site now has its own domain name: If you link to this site, it is highly recommended that you update your links to reflect the new address. For the moment all our old addresses (including and remain supported, but this support may be withdrawn at any moment.

Anyway, we (rather, I) found that my old webhost could not cope with the traffic. The services they offered were not cost-effective, and their support was almost non-existent. A traumatic incident I had with them in the beginning of the year also shook my confidence in them, when the site went down for almost a full day. The final straw was when I found that some pages could take up to almost a minute to be downloaded. I began shopping around for new web hosts, and finally settled on a one which offers more services and better service as well.

All this means is that now you won't encounter speed problems (or at least as many as you used to), and that you should use the new and simple address of If you are curious about what is in store for future articles...well, I have over 40 currently in the works. Prioritising them is a real problem, since I have limited time to spend, but I will (for the foreseeable future) continue updating the site with one article every one or two days, and on occasion two articles when possible.

Enjoy the new server.

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?
