1. i have been getting quite a few spambots commenting so now when you want to comment you have to do a little puzzle first. sorry for the inconvenience.
2. blogger has become increasingly insistent that i switch over to the new google-owned blogger. now, excited as i am about google's long electronic profile on my ISP and now being able to add my blogged information to all my google searches and everything i email to ppl with google accounts. . .
yeah, i like a good conspiracy theory as much as the next person, but this system does smell. haven't decided what to do yet. feedback welcome.
