I have been mucking around on the web since dial-up first hit the UK and have been blogging in one form or another ever since. bignoseduglyguy is the longest-lasting incarnation of such efforts but I wrote for a handheld computing website, helped launch the London & Auckland Metroblogging sites and currently post pieces at CMBits.com.  In 2005, I emigrated to New Zealand and blogged about the experience at Looking for No.8 Wire.  When I remember,  I also write about food at Big Boy’s Brunch.

    I’m getting in touch on behalf of Great Ormond Street Hospital. The hospital recently updated its website and moved page http://www.ich.ucl.ac.uk to http://www.gosh.nhs.uk.

    I can see that you are linking to the old page and the hospital would be hugely appreciative if you could update the GOSH link on the following page:


    so that the link points to http://www.gosh.nhs.uk.

    Great Ormond Street have spent a lot of time improving the site’s design to make it easier for visitors to find the information they need and it would be very helpful if you would continue sending visitors to the hospital’s homepage.

    If you have any questions, or need help with this in any way don’t hesitate to get in contact.
