I added some blocks to the right hand sidebar. Log in, and start from the top:
1. Note the Blogroll. Finally. This block lists 10 randomly rotating blogs from our blogroll (of which more below). Read below the fold...

I've been tinkering with the server some, and I hope pages are building faster now. I think they are, but that may be wishful thinking and projection! So, readers, please let me know!
Note that (1) I had to disable the glossary module for now. You never want to see the words "segmentation fault" in your server logs, eh? Read below the fold...

President Barack Obama will outline in a major speech on Sunday a blueprint for ridding the world of nuclear weapons that calls for the United States to reduce its reliance on history's deadliest arms and lead a new international effort to prevent terrorists from acquiring them.
The plan would reverse the former Bush administration's policy that made nuclear weapons a central pillar of U.S. security policy by preserving an arsenal of thousands of warheads, expanding the targets against which they could be used and embracing the development of new weapons.

What a shame. Nobody could have predicted:
He also wrote: "My great regret is that I and so many of us who have been involved in this industry for so long did not recognize the serious possibility of the extreme circumstances that the financial system faces today."
You and me both, pal. Still got your insurance? Your pension? Your house? Fuel? Read below the fold...

From the Tampa Bay Tribune:
In an era when our government has intervened on behalf of Citigroup and AIG and Freddy and Fannie and all those financial wizards on Wall Street, maybe we can bail out the tens of millions of Americans without having to count on auctions or widows' funds to pay for medical care.

Now I'm all paranoid that my pipes are going to freeze (what next...).
I did insulate more under the house, after the plumber opened it up to deal with the sewer pipe, but maybe I made things worse instead of better, or didn't close it up properly...
Anyhow, I've got a hot-water faucet dripping slowly upstairs, but the picture is slowly forming in my mind that while I sleep the pipe will freeze, the water will back up, overflow the sink, and then cause a ceiling to collapse....
Any thoughts? Read below the fold...

You should now see cute little icons over the boxes where you've been typing in text.
If, for example, you select some text and click the B (bold) button, the selected text will be surrounded by bold tags. If you select some text and click A (anchor, leftmost) button, you'll get a little form to fill in, with the selected already in the "link text" blank, and you can paste the URL into the "link URL" blank, and then click OK, and your link will be marked up correctly.
