Happy New Year! Just a few days left in 2007. This is just a collection of random notes I've had floating around this week.

Right now only 1 story on the NYTimes most popular stories page is about Bhutto’s death while 7 out of 25 are on the Yahoo! news page, and none on the Google most popular news page. Seems strange, eh?

Last weekend almost all the posts were items I had saved in my feed reader for posting later. Overall it was a very different weekend, the majority of the posts where very different than normal. I posted them all on Friday and spaced them out for the weekend. Did anyone notice? I've lined up posts for this weekend as well, but most are what I'd consider to me more "normal" LISNews posts.

Apparently I'm very suggestible, Leo suggested I change the default order of comments, and I followed his suggestion. If you noticed or care you should let me know.

There's about 8 Gazillion [Gazillion is apparently in the MS Word spell check for some reason] votes for the 10 Blogs to Read in 08 post, it's going to take me forever to get through the list. I think this is an important post though, and it's one I don't mind doing.

I'm still in love with Drupal. I'm slowly adding new modules and features that you can find by poking around a bit. One of my big goals is to make the user blogs more customizable by each user. Did I point to the new stats page yet? http://lisnews.org/stats/

Working on my list of New Year's Resolutions!
