HTTP 301: Moved Permanently (to Australia)

After 18 months in the planning I am formally issuing a HTTP 301 request for the Brown family – we are emigrating to Australia. Right now our life has been dismantled and put in a 20 foot shipping container – I’m surrounded by removal people, boxes and general chaos as I write. We fly out in two days and land in Brisbane on 10th August where we will reassemble the Brown life in sunnier climes.

I’m very excited / tired / sad / hopeful plus a number of other emotions that I don’t know the names of. But whatever happens it will be an adventure. I do know that you regret the things you don’t do; you don’t regret getting out there and giving things a go – a fair go.

So the 301 request has been sent. As Wikipedia (almost) says

The HTTP response status code 301 Moved Permanently is used for permanent software developer and family redirection

Wish us luck!!


  1. Good Luck!
    You are aware that Australia is a continent where absolutely Every Living Thing has a lethal bite, sting or claws like machetes, aren’t you?
    Oz is the place with the scarecrow, tin man and ruby slippers. Did you get the two confused?

    Anyway, take care, look after yourselves, and watch out for drop bears!

    • Thanks Dave. I’ve just read about drop bears. I’m a bit alarmed. I won’t tell the daughter about them (in the same way I haven’t told her about the spiders that are as big as dogs). Cheers.
