Casey’s Critical Thinking has moved!

Well, I’m now at a new domain. It’s been a long time coming. For the longest time I have wanted to register cct.com, cct.net, cct.info or something like that, but those domains are reserved for at least the next decade or so. I thought about caseyscriticalthinking.com, but that’s too long. So then it occurred to […]

My apologies for the problem with comments

I upgraded to the latest version of WordPress the other day, and apparently the anti-spam plugin I had installed was not compatible. It was preventing people from posting comments, but I didn’t notice it (my blog’s not that popular, so a few days without comments is not abnormal… ). Many thanks to micpro at In […]

How do you like the new look? I had used the same design for nearly 8 years. I finally decided to get the site professionally redesigned, so I enlisted the help of guys at Jenox. Their prices are very reasonable, and they were a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately I had a problem arise with […]
