These are cool, although I'll never remember them and willl continue to muddle my way through, cursing Word every few minutes.

The real reason I'm commenting is just to comment. And raise an objection to the fact that my own blog is not among those in the list of Other Cool Blogs when we all know that mine is the coolest of the cool. You need a little randomness mixed in with the geek you know.

DOH! You are so right, I was going through all my rss feeds in xml, late a night and looking through raw rss XML late at night is not recommended. Anyyways, you are right, I'm sorry, it will be fixed as soon as I get your rss feed url.

PS You can bookmark this page for future reference for when you do forget (I've already gone back to this page quite a few times! :>). LIke I said on my About page, these entries are for me too! :>
