This is one of those bland notes about my site that is eminently ignorable, except to the tech heads who for some reason visit this site (maybe because they’re my friends?).  I just modified my site’s RSS feed to display how many comments there are for each post, if any.

If you think this is a good idea, a bad idea, or especially if this is annoying or a problem for your feed reader, please let me know.

And if you do comment, well, that’ll test the new feed feature.  Everybody wins!

Oh, by the way, I don’t know if I mentioned, but I took the most annoying ad out of my blog page.  It’s a little less jarring now.

And I made the photos on every page except the front page be random—the front page is still the latest photos.  What I’d REALLY like is if the photos were ones from the same date as the post, but that’s not possible right now.  Sigh.

OK, enough geeky blogness from me.  Go in peace.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
