Hello! I will be starting the upgrade to v2.7.1 for all instances hosted in now.

This one should be smooth and there shouldn't be more than a 30 second downtime.

You can read the changelog here:

Burns Night two days late meant knock down prices on haggis on Saturday. Bonus!


It was pointed out that it's not easy to find the remaining three MS fragment posts using the previous link - this should help - informationdirectorate.blogspo

While digging through my files for something else, I found the link to the blog posts I did for the York Minster Library about my work there cataloguing manuscript fragments used in the bindings of early print books - informationdirectorate.blogspo

Any issues, please let me know.

We popped up to York this past weekend, mostly to see Berwick Kaler's swan song - he's been the dame in the panto there for 40 years. It's still my favorite city in the world. Cambridge is alright, and Oxford is pretty good, but York is special. For a medievalist, it's hard to beat York for history - especially surviving bits and bobs.

Pity they'd closed the walls because of the weather ...
