Subject: a relocation and rebirth Dear members of Humanist, As you will know from the long silence, with occasional shouts from this corner of the world, Humanist as we knew it ceased to work in early July of this year. Lamentations from many and thrashings around for help followed. Thanks to the superb technical work of Tim Watts and Brian Maher of the King's Digital Lab (www.kdl.kcl.ac.uk), the insightful leadership of its Director, Dr James Smithies, and approval of the necessary work at Faculty level, Humanist works once more. Or so I trust as I write this note. My thanks to the several people who volunteered to help when help was so badly needed. But it seemed to me, as it did to James, that King's College London, my academic home for the last many years, was the best place for it. Brian, Tim and I concluded that the only visible change in Humanist should be the interface that I face daily. It has been beautifully and functionally redesigned. The daily postings that you see, however, remain exactly the same. The subscription mechanism is new, so also presentation of the autobiographical statements. The internal workings (a.k.a. the back-end) has been completely rebuilt and, Tim tells me, simplified and made more robust. The numbering of postings should pick up where they left off, with the same volume-number. The web-page needs changing, of course. Please do report anything that doesn't look or function as it should. If this test-message works as it should, I will follow with a posting that arrived this morning. If you see what I think you will see, please resume sending in queries, comments, announcements and the like. Welcome back!
