Moving to Squarespace 6 from Squarespace 5

I finally bit the bullet and made the leap from 5 to 6. Initially I was held back by the lack of support for my favourite blogging software, Marsedit. It doesn't look like Squarespace are going to put back the compatability with Marsedit any time soon. Eventually, I felt it would be easy enough just to work with Markdown text files and then copy and paste them into the Squarespace 6 post editor. It seems to work fine. I chose the template called Hudson.

The compelling reason to switch was the responsive design templates available on v6. Most of my traffic comes from mobile devices (phones and tablets), so this is important. I like the fact that I don't have to pinch and zoom on the iPhone to read the site easily.

I also decided to merge and into a single site with two distinct sections. I think it looks pretty good so far. Clean lines, no clutter. Almost iOS7-like. Don't laugh.

The switching process was reasonably easy. Getting used to the new system is happening slowly. I'm happy., domain names and why I don't like GoDaddy

I like buying domain names.

My latest purchase is No site up yet (clicking should redirect), but it has potential I think.

Now I just need to find an imaging technique that allows me to do just that - follow an atherosclerotic plaque as it regresses under the effects of therapy. There are in fact several ways of doing this already - ultrasound of the carotid arteries, MRI of the carotids and aorta and of course intravascular ultrasound for the coronary arteries. These all provide useful structural information, and regression may be linked to future cardiovascular risk reduction. Wouldn't it be useful to have a global vascular score for each patient? Yep, I also own And Told you I like domains!

But it seems that the functional characteristics of the plaque may change in a beneficial way before the intervention affects the structure of the lesion, and it is believed that inflammation imaging, perhaps using FDG PET, might give an earlier readout of treatment efficacy (or otherwise) than waiting for wall thickness changes.

I use Hover to buy my domains. I used to use GoDaddy, but the constant upselling at checkout was annoying.

I have a 10% discount code for this of you that want to try Hover. Message me on Twitter and I'll send it to you.
