I started this blog on the WordPress.com site, because I thought it’d be too much trouble to keep upgrading WordPress versions as they came out, but it really isn’t that bad, and I’d like to keep everything together on Psychocats, so you can find this blog (including all the old comments and posts) at http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntucat/ from now on.
Be sure to update your RSS readers as well: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntucat/?feed=rss2.
If you’re new to UbuntuCat and don’t know where to start, here are some of my favorite posts. They’re not reader-voted-on or reader-approved. Just my faves.
For now, I just have them listed. When I have time, I’ll order them by category or by most to least favorite.
