As of today April 14, I have moved my main blog from edublogs to wordpress. Main reason is the edu - advertisements that have appeared of late plus the inability to post a blog from email. With performance issues trying to post using web forms was simply too slow to allow me to easily and quickly add a new blog post.
Have copied all the blog entries from http://virtualmv.edublogs.org to the new http://virtualmv.wordpress.com will try to sort out any images later.
Will move over links to Facebook etc over the next few weeks.
