Well this post is a message to all my followers: a new age is dawning over here. As visioned over one year ago, Vertecology has moved to a WordPress.ORG installation. This is great news. while the site looks much the same for the moment, there are big plans that can finally begin to see the light of day. This is my formal invitation to you as a loyal follower. Please go to and click the “follow” button at the bottom right corner of your screen to continue recieving posts and updates. The wordpress.COM install that we’ve been running has been delinked from and will be closed down shortly.
