Random Stuff

As a warning, I’m up to my neck in tax returns and won’t be posting too much. But fear not, I should have much of this cleared up by next week. In the meantime, if you’re jonesing for some fresh Biobrain action, just read Digby’s blog and add a “ditto” at the end of each post.

As another warning, I’m planning some major changes to the blog, including a Biobrain Blogroll Contest. I’ll explain more later. One housekeeping question, are y’all ok with the standard template of this blog? It’s one of those generic Blogger layouts and I’m always alittle embarrassed when I see someone else using the same one. So are you people accustomed to this blog layout, or should I think about individualizing it slightly? And to those RSS people out there, do you guys even see my blog layout, or does it feed into a standard format? I still haven’t quite figured out exactly what RSS is, so I’m not sure how to investigate this for myself. And if anyone has any suggestions for blog features, I’ll look into it. I’ve mentioned this a few times before, but I’m serious this time.

Oh, and to give you something fresh, I’ll just quote my favorite pro-war media quote from this list by FAIR:
"We're all neo-cons now." (MSNBC's Chris Matthews, 4/9/03)

Indeed. But then again, this one’s pretty damn good too:
"The war was the hard part. The hard part was putting together a coalition, getting 300,000 troops over there and all their equipment and winning. And it gets easier. I mean, setting up a democracy is hard, but it is not as hard as winning a war." (Fox News Channel's Fred Barnes, 4/10/03)

Or maybe it’s the exact opposite.

Oh hell, they’re all good. Here’s another favorite:
"What's he going to talk about a year from now, the fact that the war went too well and it's over? I mean, don't these things sort of lose their--Isn't there a fresh date on some of these debate points?" (MSNBC's Chris Matthews, speaking about Howard Dean--4/9/03)

Yeah, poor Howard Dean. What will he talk about?

If you can play with the template (a picture of a mad scientist up on top?) fine, but the generic template is just fine, too.

You read just fine in Bloglines as well.

The main thing I would say is, don't get too cute with the color scheme & font -- keep 'em unobtrusive & easy to read. Other than that, I don't really care. Have fun if you feel like adding bells & whistles, don't bother if you don't.

Don't change the site.

The brilliance is adornment enough.
