That's Derek and his mom. He's perennially improved. God Bless Him. I'm constantly looking for a solution for all that wasted sidebar space and I've been playing with code to figure out how to fill it. Blogs are so simple, but one of their weaknesses vs. traditional websites is the linking to older information. I started putting together some of my favorite posts in the sidebar. I'm exhausted just doing the necessary html work to get the top 5, eventually there will be 10. I owe my survival at boring educational meetings to the creation of the top ten most boring or ridiculous things that occured at those functions. It expanded to other areas. I circulated this top ten list to some like minded people in my former school. I suspect some rat fink got a hold of it and brought it to the principal to earn browny points and extra per session. It's been censored from its original form. There's also a connection between this and the recent mention of jargon, but I'll spare you the synchronicity factor.
