Why does the blog layout look strange?
Are you using Internet Explorer 6 (IE6)? This blog is best viewed with modern browsers such as Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Internet Explorer 7+. (If you are not using IE6 and think something is broken on the blog, we’d appreciate it if you emailed us!)
How can I subscribe to your blog (via RSS feeds)?
You can receive a notification in your email program or web browser whenever we publish a new post to our blog. This is called subscribing via an RSS feed (RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication). You can do so by clicking on the orange icon at the top of the sidebar to the right, or here:
I clicked on the subscribe button , but it’s not working.
If you see a bunch of code, such as displayed below, then it is likely that your browser does not support subscription via RSS feeds. This is true of older browsers, including Internet Explorer 6. We recommend using Firefox, or upgrading to Internet Explorer 7.

What are these buttons on posts?
These buttons (shown at the bottom of this page) are “social networking” buttons. Each one represents a different service that allows you to share your interests with others. For example, if you click on the rightmost button, you can recommend this article to other users of the Stumble Upon service.
The buttons are, from left to right: Twitter, Yahoo Buzz!, Delicious, Digg, Facebook, LinkedIn, Reddit, Stumble Upon. If you hover the mouse pointer over each button, you’ll see the name revealed.
To use each of these services, you must set up an account (for free). When you click on a service’s button for the first time, it will take you to the “Create an account / Login” page.
