Welcome to the re-designed, re-hosted and re-platformed Simply Statistics blog. We have moved the blog over to the WordPress platform to give us some newer features that were lacking over at tumblr. So far the transition has gone okay but there may be a few bumps over the next 24 hours or so as we learn the platform. Remember, we're not the young hackers that we used to be.

A few things have changed. First off, the search box actually works. Also, in moving the Disqus comments over, we seem to have lost all of the old comments. So unfortunately many of your gems from the past are now gone. If anyone knows how to retain old comments on Disqus, please let us know! I think Jeff's been banging his head for a while now trying to figure this out.

We're hoping to roll out a few new features over the next few months so keep an eye out and come back often.

    Oh my, it is toooo bad to lose comments, especially when the quality of the comments in this website is often very good. I'll investigate it in a minute to see if I can help.

      I agree. The comments from this site really contribute a lot to what's being discussed in the posts.

    I suppose your URLs changed in the process. You can fix this using the migration tools provided by Disqus. Head over to YOURSITE.disqus.com/admin/tools/migrate/ and start the URL mapper.

    I really liked the look and feel of the old site but if WordPress is better, then so be it. Besides, as long as the content continues to be spectacular, people will continue to come. Looking forward to using the new blog design.

    What is the key feature that you felt was missing in Tumblr? I'm guessing the ability to show highlighted R code. The search box is fixable using Google Custom Search http://www.google.com/cse/
