New look!

Hello friends of Readers Recommend and the Song Bar! The Marconium is undergoing a facelift right now. Up to now I had managed it on my computer, uploading files as they were readied. I have now switched to WordPress and will be updating files online.

This was sort of forced on me as my laptop had a problem and it is in for servicing. I’m working on a loaner and don’t want to reinstall all my programs since I get the other one back in about three weeks. So I thought I’d manage this one in the cloud like most of my other websites.

It will take a while until everything is migrated, so for now, you can catch up with everything to this point – namely the old website, by clicking the link – Old Website.

As I migrate files, they may take on a slightly different look.

The files will all be transferred as pages, not as blog posts, so they will all appear in a menu I will create at the top. If a page is not in the menu yet, click on the Old Website link.

Blog posts will be reserved for the former front page and occasional announcements. Maybe for the topic pages.

If you have suggestions or feedback, you can post in comments.
