Observant readers may note that I removed the “What am I reading” part of the sidebar. I hadn’t updated that since March, and didn’t have any desire to keep it, so it’s gone. In its place I’ve incorporated a Recent Comments and Trackbacks plugin that should add some useful information to the blog.
Occasionally I’ve gotten comments on some of my older postings, especially the Lost post, and I realized that the only way for people to see those comments is to go there. There’s no way for my readers to know that a new comment has appeared without some additional information from me. Therefore, the new plugin. Hopefully, it won’t break.
