‘Nations stumble upon establishments, which are indeed the result of human action,
but not the execution of any human design.’

DMI Website Transition

The website for Disraeli-Macdonald Institute will be going off-line—temporarily.

Since January 2008, DMI has been hosted, gratis, by the fine folks at Yahoo! GeoCities. This spring, however, Yahoo announced that, as part of its restructuring programme, it would be phasing out its free server sites. All such sites, including DMI, will no longer be available as of 26 October.

I have been mulling over a number of alternatives to keep DMI as an internet presence, and it is hoped that the Institute will be back on-line by the end of this week—depending on how quickly I can remaster basic web technology. (Yahoo’s simplicity was one of its many charms!) And, if fortune shines upon me, this transition will allow for a slightly improved design.

So, in the interim, don’t forget DMI’s Twitter feed at OrganicTory, plus surf over to Facebook where a number of aficionados have set up a page for the ‘Friends of the Disraeli-Macdonald Institute for Organic Toryism’.

My thanks to Yahoo! GeoCities for 22 months of reliable web hosting, and watch this space for further DMI updates.
