1. Laura Kalbag: Avatars. Do they add anything to comments, or are they a waste of space?

    laurakalbag they add significant value to conversations, as they provide a recognisable visual indication of who is speaking and where each comment starts/ends. I am inclined against comments, but would recommend having avatars if you do :)

  2. In the evening () I’m off to a neo-folk session at the Steam Packet Inn, Totnes, with Robin from and some other musicians. Come along if you’re interested in playing trad/new trad/new medieval tunes!

  3. Just pushed a plugin which auto–populates the <ins> and <del> elements with their little–known datetime and cite attributes. Hopefully, coupled with my article update histories and a bit of , this’ll allow for some native-HTML version control type stuff.

  4. Oscar and I just watched the last two episodes of Captain Scarlet. Our conclusion is the same as that of The Hunger Games: they should have left off the end bit and concluded at a dramatic moment.

    The whole “and it was all Symphony’s dream” is infuriating, and the last episode is a pointless clip show in which the only thing we learn about the Mysterons is that they own(ed) some old warehouse somewhere. Ah well, on to Stingray next, I suppose
