From little things….

Big things grow.

Thanks to all of you for dropping by so regularly, reading my gibberish and leaving some of your own.  It seems that Trollhattan has outgrown the platform it’s resting on, so my time over the next few weeks is going to be spent trying to format a new site that’ll handle the bandwidth and storage requirements.

If you have any suggestions that are do-able within the blog format, please drop them in comments and I’ll try and get them incorporated in due course.

In the mean time, keep on Saabing and keep on dropping by.  This site will still be available for a few months (as long as Typepad don’t cut me off for excess bandwidth usage) and I’ll still be updating stuff as news comes to hand.  After the new templates and content are sorted I’ll be carpeting the web with an updated link to

The good thing about the new site is that I can design it from the ground up, but like designing new cars, it’s going to take a little time.

Keep checking in, and remember to drop your suggestions in comments.

  1. Curious to know what “outgrown” means, is it cost of bandwidth or the host co request to reduce bandwidth?

    For future maybe add a sitemeter, be interested to see the no’s!

  2. G’day Robin,

    The post here was on February 7. Just over 3 months ago. Right now the counter’s at 28702. It’s been busy. I upgraded to the Pro account with the extra bandwidth but am still forecast to go 130% for this month.

    MT will be a pain in the butt to set up, but it’ll be worthwhile. I get to have a proper domain name (YES!!) and once I get the hang of running it (nowhere near as userfriendly as Typepad) it should be good.

  3. Yes, my CAD Blog went ballistic last month as had content about the new AutoCAD. TypePad were good as traffic went close to 200% my pro bandwidth. It’s settled down again to about the 5gb but did have me wondering what if it didn’t!

    Have thought about MT myself but just love the simplicity of TypePad.
