Weekend update: Other things found this week:
A little less posting than usual this past week or so because of problems with Blogger. Lots of bloggers have been commenting on this, so it's not just me. There was even a story in Wired recently. I don't see any explanation coming from Blogger, although they have been having trouble getting their new posting recovery feature to work. Let's hope this doesn't last too much longer. Blogger keeps getting better and better but when there are problems they seem soo much more annoying now that we expect better from Google.
