Nobody cares but me, but I did a little bit of category cleaning on the blog here today. It was just bugging me having categories with one or four entries so I absorbed all those tiny ones into the new "Personal Interest" which also includes the old "Trivialities" which wasn't very descriptive. If category assignement was less cumbersome in Moveable Type, I might let them proliferate wildly like my tags (246 and counting).

In other blog news, I'm going to shut down comments from Sunday night until 4/1. We'll be out of town and I'm seriously considering not taking any computers with us so I wouldn't be able to do my daily comment spam cleanup (134 last night alone).

Finally, I see that back in August I was threatening to install a new layout here at Mad Times, and clearly that hasn't happened. There's still a lot of polishing to do on the new templates. However the main index one is basically usable, and might be of interest to any of you using the dreaded Internet Explorer to view this site since it does fix the horizontal scrollbar bug that's been on this blog since day one. (IE renders the page so that the content portion is the width of the full window so when you add on the navigation pane at the left, part of the content is chopped off on the right and you have to scroll right to see everything. No other browser interprets my page this way.) Anyway, if you're interested, take a look at the new layout and let me know what you think by email or by commenting on this post.
