For many years Jacques Chester has been generously providing technical support for this blog and several others. With a busy job in New York he is now transitioning us to a commercial host. This blog will be down for a while so that can occur.

Peter John Chen of the Department of Government at the University of Sydney is conducting a survey of blog readers, with some overlapping questions with the Australian Election Study.
The survey is open to readers of the blog who live in Australia. It will be used in a forthcoming (2012) book on the internet and Australia.
The survey will take only 10 minutes, and all responses are anonymous and confidential.
The survey can be found here.
You can have results sent to you if decide to leave an email. Otherwise, I will report them when they are available.

The reasons for the switch are explained here.
