TCI Post switches to WordPress
We see that the TCI Post has switched to WordPress and is in the middle of re-directing its “tcipost.com” domain. As I write this there are still problems reaching the tcipost.com domain, but our link should work.
Good luck to the TCI Post. We don’t agree with everything they write and they likely view BFP the same way, but what a boring world it would be if we all liked rum and I couldn’t have my tonic and gin!
