Site feeds, and request for suggestions 

The "state of the art" circa 2004 technology that this blog happily has run on until now is, under the strain of an inexplicable rise in traffic over the last few months, beginning to show signs of stress (the carved wooden template is starting to give off splinters).

So some modest upgrades are beginning. First up: site feeds. All promises are that this back-end change will be invisible to users -- but on the principle that everything that can go wrong will go wrong, be informed that should your feed be interrupted you can restore it quickly by simply hitting the subscribe button on the left.

Beyond that, if you have any suggestions you'd like to make to improve this place, either technology- or content-wise, drop them in a comment or in an e-mail to scribbler at All will be appreciated. But please, start at the extreme "most result to least effort involved" end of the return curve. This blog is strictly a spare moments project. TIA.
