The Lean Blog is now Fully on


I've made a major transition in the hosting of the blog, the “” name and pages are now automatically forwarded to “”

Any old pages or links now automatically forward to the proper page. For example, what used to be “” is now “”.

One favor I would ask is that if you're a blog that has my site in your “Blog Roll,” please update the URL to point to

I apologize for any temporary glitches that might occur during the transition. If you get a “404” error, hit “reload”, that has fixed the problem for me. I'm hoping that is just temporary.

While this might be confusing in the short term, I”m hoping it is ultimately less confusing in the long term. My branding will match the domain name that appears in everyone's browser address bar. Many organizations block the “” domain, so hopefully more people will be able to access the blog from corporate PC's (any “time wasting” that occurs is a Standard Work issue between you and your manager).

Update 11:30 am: is working, but (without the www) is not working currently.

Update 12:29 pm: it's now working, even without the “www.” RSS feed is updated and should still be working. If you're an RSS reader, you shouldn't have to change a thing. Let me know if there are any problems.
