A New Blogroll

I’ve added a blogroll as a sidebar. It’s a selection of recent posts from some of the blogs I follow. It’s organised chronologically so only the newest will appear and for now only the latest 12 are shown. If you want your blog to be added, and you write often enough for it to show up, then please let me know. Friends will get priority, but it’s not as if I have people beating at the doors.

A reciprocal link would be nice, but isn’t necessary for inclusion.

Thanks for the upgrade!

And then, a most kind-hearted smurf called zedalphus blew up one of our portals not 40 metres from where I stood shivering in a bus shelter, allowing me to re-capture it and get my new level. Since this is about my most public channel, I’d like to thank zedalphus publicly here for his sterling work on behalf of the Enlightened. He (or she) has a truly green heart and should be granted Honorary Enlightened status.

As an aside, Agent GeekyLou was also able to get a new level and is (I believe), our newest level 7 agent at this time.

A fun evening was had by all, including at the Pizza Express where the food was wonderful, though not as spicy as I was hoping for, and the service was entertaining to say the least. Continue reading “Thanks for the upgrade!”
