I am looking at my email inbox and thinking what emails I should choose to reply to as I "move in" to my space here at dadamac.net. As I look, I realise that I will probably be making reference to information published on the Internet within my replies. This means it would be helpful to have the relevant links easily to hand.
If I have to refer to a link in one of my emails I'll try to put it here as well, that way I should save myself time in future, and the information will be available to anyone else who wants it. Probably it won't stay here, because it should be somewhere easier to find - but I can sort that out later, when I have moved in properly and have a better idea of what I want and where it should go. I will try to explain the context of the links as I go along, which should make me less of an information bottleneck.
