Sidebars and side projects

Quick post, with just two tiny announcements. 1. Side bar I’ve now added some links in the sidebar here. (There, to the right). They’re all blogs that have been sitting in my Google Reader for several months under the header “Sidebar Audition”, and I’m pleased to say these blogs passed…
