Read more about this new blog and my explanation in the first introductory post. Like the other blogs that I started in the past, I will be moving some articles on this blog to the new hacker blog for relevance.

I hope you become a regular reader of this blog!

Hey Everybody,

I spontaneously decided to buy a dedicated domain name for the freeware review. Instead of the http://freeware.art-app.com subdomain, I am using the http://www.freewarereview.info domain. I’ve also changed the permalink structure for individual posts to make the articles more search engine friendly. I also changed the permalink structure for The Information Bank. In addition, I have instituted permalink and domain redirects to make the transition easier. You may not even notice anything at all! That is a good thing. If you do notice any problems, please notify me! Remember to update your bookmark, link, and feed URLs accordingly too!
