h reflex

A bit shy of a week, but then counting has never been a strength.
General weakness is lifting.

I'm rather disturbed by the white space creep (at the bottom of the page) that is a consequence of an MT hiatus. Again it could be metaphorical. Fade to blank. Whiteness draws nigh.

Meanwhile a few miscellaneous links:
Vitamin Q Calamities, glitches etc occuring during poetry readings I have given

Kafka Cooks Dinner (via Grow a Brain)
(which just has to team with the old Jean-Paul Sartre Cookbook)

And a recycled link from blogspot days. It's strange but quite amusing to note that one of the most consistent search requests I get is for Sgt Peppers Futons or variations upon this theme, which directs shoppers or beatlefans to this old post. It was a rather link heavy thing - a style which I suspect may be too link heavy for the time-challenged blog-reader. I always thought the best link in that was to a Dylanesque song about Futons - but as it was embedded at the foot of the futon post it may have been overlooked. I played it again last night and have been singing along.

If you want to prevent white-space creep if you take a few days off posting, you need to make sure your front page is set to show a certain number of the most recent posts rather than a certain number of days' worth of posting. I think mine is set to show the last 20 posts I've made rather than the last 7 days or so.

Thanks James.
Remember reading about this Posts vs Days thing.
And just tried to get into the Config to adjust it - but can't seem to find any alt setting to tweak. Just number of 'days'.
Oh well - I'll let it sit, otherwise this post would make no sense at all ;)

And maybe fear of the dreaded WSC is enough to keep us posting?

Just checked out the mannual and see that tag -
Guess I just add this within the MTEntries section?
Or get to like the white space.

We anyway are looking for the words and don't notice the white, which is in itself a bit elegant.
