If it ain’t not broke…

Feeling stretched a bit thin at the moment. That, combined with John’s work, suggest that I was too quick to propose the beta upgrade. Where things stand, wagtheslate works. Labels (tabs) in beta.blogger are attractive, but problematic, and they don’t do anything that delicious isn’t already doing. A comment feed would be a welcome addition, but until I get good enough in beta to hack it as well as wagtheslate, they alone don’t warrant the switch. Basically, if I’m going to do this right I need to get better, come up with some better ideas, and find some better hacks. For that to happen, I’m in need of a break. So I’m putting the upgrade on the back burner. Thanks for all your help and input thus far.

I’ve consolidated our progress here.

Fair enough, and I appreciate you putting this together.

I don't think the problems are showstoppers, and probably are more problems with blogger than your application of the features.

In any case, this is working well for now, so it's fine by me.

Sounds like a plan. My graphics tablet ate it's shorts last night, so this is perfect timing for me, too.

Ender, John, anybody I'd appreciate some advice.

I have a long fray post here about Korea.

For longer posts, would y'all suggest that I just go ahead and put the whole thing up, divide into a couple of different posts, or abridge?

Thanks in advance. And thanks again, Ender, for all your work.

Ender: thanks for all your work. I'll support whatever you decide.

august: put it all up.

2 thoughts concerning a name-change: 1) the only good reasons I see for this are legal ones, anticipating that the site might generate an income at some point (though Ender's expressed opposition); 2) if it's going to be changed, earlier might be better than later.

I'm still kind of in favor of a name change, and although there's certainly no hurry on it, dawn is right about sooner being better than later if we're going to do it.

Lets just let it ride for now, and for the time being continue to put up name suggestions as anyone thinks of them, and I'll keep a list.

And ditto, thanks for all the work you've done, Ender.
