The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

Obligatory Nitpicking

This morning's Province screamed:

"Woman, 24, charged with harassing ex-boyfriend, 52"

on the front page. The story was, of course, that of Rachel Marsden being arrested and subsequently charged with criminal harassment -- the part about the 52-year-old ex was correct; but they screwed up on Marsden's age. She is actually 28 years old. I wonder if whoever let that error get onto the front page got a talking-to today. In any case, they can't use the excuse of being rushed; the story actually broke on Wednesday night, and her court appearance was at mid-day yesterday, well before the paper's deadline.

More on the Marsden story from the National Post, and a longer report from the Vancouver Sun.
