monthly archives condensed

to help save some space, and reduce the huge page loads here, i’ve condensed the monthly archives by providing only titles and general information on each post here. full posts are now limited to the category and individual archives, presumably where they are most useful.

button updated

just in case anyone still has trouble reading, the comment-posting button has been revised from “I agree to the terms above” to “I agree to all of the posting terms for this site”

reading is still the visitor’s burden. if you don’t feel like reading the terms or you think your ad campaign is somehow an exception to the “no spam” rule here at the meta-roj blog, just remember, you may be tracked down and your efforts displayed in public.

electoral vote status on the right

i’ve added a button on the right column to provide more realistic election-status information than seems to be available from the major media and their nation-wide polls. yes, it’s a statistical tie when you ask everyone, but some votes count more than others, and the electoral college votes are the only ones that count at all.

this handy button, provided by gives a different perspective. hopefully one that is a little closer to what matters in this election year.

update: if that’s not what you came looking for… maybe these will help.

more categories here

in a fit of frustration during a few idle moments between calls today, i decided to splt up some of the categories here that were getting a little unruly. i’m not sure i caught everything, but hopefully it’ll all make sense. so, we’ve added presidential politics, personal politics and international politics, attention technology, blogging, culture, economics, elections, food, music, music business news (which will be link-dropping, as opposed to commentary, i think) and photo. that should make some of the fatter archives more tolerable, particularly for the less-bandwidth-gifted among us.

draft bruce gets a button

i’ve added a button for draft bruce over there on the right… and in good company, i think.

why, you might ask?

well, when i noticed that bruce was commenting on gore’s speech, i blogged it. and when someone stepped up and did something about it, i blogged it. and when the effort made the news wires, i blogged it. so with all those seconds of accumulated interest focused on bruce and draft bruce, i thought it was worth a more-permanent home.

it’s about doing something – and andrew has done something. i’m just here to help.

someone remind me to take it down after the concert 🙂
