I’m moving to www.iheni.com

So I’ve decided to stop squatting and get my own place at www.iheni.com. All previous posts and comments are present and correct together with links.

I’ll be tinkering under the bonnet over the next week or two but other than that it’s business as usual.

I’m just moving my account so things will not quite be how they’re meant to be. Content remains unchanged it’s the other stuff I’m just sorting out. Should be back to normal soon.

In honor of Jeffrey Zeldman‘s blue beanie on the cover of his classic book, Monday, November 26th is blue beanie day Blue Beanie Day.

Blue Beanie Day is about Standardistas wearing a Blue Beanie to show their support for accessible, semantic web content. To get involved grab a Blue Beanie and snap a photo. Then on November 26, switch your profile picture in Facebook, Twitter, Last.FM, iLike, Pownce (the list is endless) and post your photo to the Blue Beanie Day group at Flickr.

If you want to know more about web standards check out the Web Standards Project.

Supporting Blue Beanie Day in the Arctic - there is a blue beanie under all that protective clothing - promise!

I’m still toying with ideas of where it is going (read: having an identity crisis) but stick with me and it’ll all come out in the wash…

Back soon…

While wandering around the web looking at a couple of dog sledding sites I came across Crazy Musher a fellow dog sledder who went on the exact same route as we did in Alta, the Arctic Circle in Norway. Crazy Musher was raising money for the Scott Polar Research Institute and had the initiative to take along a BBC journalist to record the trip.

This short TV news item describes and shows the same route we followed as well as interviews with our lovely Viking guide Pre Thore…
