Moving in

The move of the website is almost complete, a few things to sort out and it’s almost there. Need to get the images in the gallery moved across, and clean up some of the old Posterous links in a few of the post, but its pretty much moved now and has a splendid new look. Enjoy!

On the move

Sadly Posterous is closing down in April so in the next few days I will be moving wwii.co.uk Echoes from the Past to a new home - so there will be a new look to the website. I have been testing out tumblr and I it will do most of what I need; with a few short comings; things like photo galleries and images not quite appearing as I want them. Once I have it cracked it, then the domian will move and I will close the old Posterous site. Farewell Posterous you did all I needed, then Twitter killed you off.
