This has been on the todo list for a while (the blog is all static hand
written HTML at the moment). I made separate pages as requested just now and
they're online. Should make linking easier (just click on the article headings
on the blog front page).

No we don't have a sponsor offering that at the moment (I'd be delighted if we
did). Which archived mail gave you that impression?

I guess you're referring to the blog ( is HTTPS accessible, but is not)? The new site will host the blog on a single (not sub)
domain, so all pages will be reachable by an encrypted connection. Does that
answer your question?
