By way of an experiment, I'm going to switch to Blogger's dynamic Magazine view on this blog for a while. If I decide I don't like it, I reserve the right to switch back. This means I think I lose all the sidebars, which is one reason why it might not be a permanent change!
One of the bits in the sidebar you're now missing, of course, is the fact that sometime yesterday or possibly Tuesday (it passed in a blur of database disasters at work) this blog passed 10,000 page views. Woot!
Anyway, comments welcome!
[Edited: Interesting. It appears to have changed back without my intervention. However, I have to say that I missed the sidebars something rotten, and I'm pretty sure it produces an artificial inflation in stats. That and it's not as nice to read, so... back we go.]
