Odds and ends

Today was largely spent trying to shake off the cold that's been annoying me all week. However, in a late evening spurt of productivity I freshened this blog up a little. The impetus was Last.fm and its new widgets. The old one stopped working a few weeks ago so I fixed that and then, since I was there, I added a flickr widget too. From there it was a slippery slope and I ended up re-skinning the entire page.

It's the same old WordPress theme but I've changed the header image and the background colours to match. I quite like it, although it will probably make people thing this blog is called Don't Walk.

Now all I have to do is make some time to write more.

If you haven't looked at 26 books for a while, I've added two more titles. Tim Harford's The Undercover Economist and Don DeLillo's Falling Man have taken me over the halfway mark with more than half the year remaining.
