At some point my friend from high school took down the server where I hosted my website and blog. After dragging my feet for what ended up being years, I finally got an account at a webhost and moved my domain there.
As far as I’m aware, the old content got lost. But that’s OK.

Everyone who signs up for a a monthly Friends of GNOME donation receive a postcard from a GNOME hacker as a thank you. We found the regular, touristy postcards a bit boring, so we decided to create some ourselves, based on motives by four GNOME artists.
They are drawn by Kalle Persson, Vinicius Depizzol, Máirín Duffy and myself (Andreas Nilsson).
So if you would like one of these, sign up to be a monthly donor!
Once you’re done with that, you can encourage others to donate by putting one of these badges on your blog or website.

I’m happy that #381206 have been given some priority and we’ll do our best to fix it.
