Mudanças + ano novo chinês

O blog sempre esteve em /blog ou blog.blanchatre.net desde que eu abri o domínio, em dezembro de 2007. Na época, era moda ter um domínio tipo portal, na página inicial linkar todos os subdomínios, e melhor ainda: em uma imagem clicável. Fiz isso durante anos, até que ano passado mudei a home para um site um pouco mais elaborado, ainda listando todos os subdomínios, até os inativos. Durante muito tempo...

Not a super realistic horse,...
