I’ve had a lot of business in my personal life, as well as being generally dissatisfied with blogger’s overall service and support. So I’ve moved my blog to WordPress, though I could not transfer my old domain name, which is why, as you can see, I’ve changed my domain from .com to .net. (update any links you might have)

It took me the better part of today to get the new site setup, I managed to import all the posts from my old blog, though I have not, and probably won’t, transfer the comments. You can still view any comments made on old articles by visiting my old blog at In any case, everything is pretty much setup at this point, though I might make a few minor changes. Let me know what you think of the new layout.

I get bizarre spam. Thu, 10 Apr 2014 23:29:00 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Every once in a while I the spam filter catches a really odd comment on one of my posts.

I got this one a few days ago.

Switched to Disqus for comments Mon, 01 Jul 2013 21:39:00 +0000 Continue reading ]]> I’ve been working on a few technical changes on my blog recently to make things more accessible and user friendly.  One thing in particular that has always bugged me is the comments system on blogger. It’s functional but pretty light on features.

Blogger introduced a way to switch comments over to a G+ system a while back and it was a bit slicker but still lacked a lot of features, it also had the annoying habit of destroying comments if I had to revert a post to draft for some reason. So I’ve been wanting to replace it for a while, I noticed a lot of people using Disqus so I finally logged into my account there to see how easy it would be to integrate my blog with it. Turns out it was super easy and took like 10 minutes, makes me feel silly for not doing it earlier.

Anyway, for anyone unfamiliar with Disqus you have to sign up for an account to post since I don’t have anonymous posting turned on. You can sign up here,

A couple of general announcements. Thu, 10 Jan 2013 06:50:00 +0000 Continue reading ]]> First off I made some business cards for the site and they came in today

I think they came out pretty good.

Second I will be doing a talk at SkeptiCamp on Jan 26 dealing with the intersection of science and religion during the protestant reformation.  Did the protestant reformation have an effect on the development of science? I’ll see if I can record it and put it up on the blog.

Third, I should be going to the American Atheist convention in Austin at the end of March, I have my plane ticket already, just need to get a hotel room.

New Facebook page. Thu, 24 May 2012 19:48:00 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Just a heads up.

I created a Facebook page for this blog which I’m sure everyone will want to run over and “like” immediately.

It’ll be a good way to get notifications of blog updates if you don’t use twitter, which you can also follow if you want, just look me up as skeptimusprime on twitter.

I’ve been busy. Sat, 28 May 2011 00:36:00 +0000 Continue reading ]]> I thought I would make a quick post letting people know I have had quite a bit going on in my life the last few months.

Some bad, some very good, but it has distracted me from posting.  I should be making posts again this weekend.

Busy life Mon, 07 Mar 2011 20:03:00 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Sorry I have not been keeping up with my blog lately, I have had lots of things going on in my life the last few weeks.  I should be getting part 3 of my religious deconversion out in the next day or so.  Hopefully regular updates will resume at that point.
