This is the new home of the California High Speed Rail Blog. After over a year and a half at Blogger, we’ve decided to move up in the world to a unique URL and a WordPress installation.
Have a look around, try things out. Note the new comments system, which enables threaded comments using the AJAX system (enabling instantaneous posting of comments without having to reload the page and lose your place). Consider registering your username for posting here – you don’t have to, but it would be helpful.
And please read over the comments policy. It’s nothing new, but a formalization of our general practices.
Many, many, many thanks to Avery Smith at The Smiths Design for the final blog design you see before you, which incorporates much of the initial feedback on the new site from some of the regular commenters.
A note: the transfer from Blogger is incomplete. Owing to a problem at Google, which owns and manages Blogger, comments posted prior to November 11, 2009 haven’t yet been imported, though all 600 or so posts have been successfully imported. There are problems with this across Blogger and I expect they will be resolved before long. In earlier testing we have been able to successfully import all 20,000+ comments, and we expect to do so again before long. The old site remains as an archive, and will be there for as long as Blogger exists.
Any other bugs or problems? Let me know in the comments!
