Technical things

A few technical things:

  1. Some connectivity issues will limit the number of postings over the next week or ten days.

  2. I've been noticing that there are quite a few referrals from translation sites, and have been experimenting, without much success, with various translation additions to the blog. All of them seem to have some problem or another. I've finally found one that works (sort of), and plan to add it soon.

  3. The blogroll is still a work in progress (as it must always be), and I'm wondering whether I should try to limit its ever-increasing length by restricting it to pure conspiracy sites. It has always seemed to me that too long a blogroll is no better than not having one at all.

  4. The big philosophical debate is whether I should have more, shorter, links, just alerts to particular conspiracy issues, along with the longer, more reflective, posts. More links might attract more traffic, people who might not otherwise be aware of the longer posts. The downside is that you'd have to wade through more crap to get to the unique stuff. Perhaps the ideal is to leave xymphora as it is, and create a new blog with just short links.

  5. The Blogger spell checker doesn't recognize the word 'blog'.

  6. Thanks to TT and WR for their generosity.
