New Design

Hey, check out the new blog design:

I still need to add archive links (not difficult), flip banner photo to flickr links (difficult if it’s done “right”), and the other tweaks mentioned below. The Technorati lookups aren’t live. Not sure how to do this, actually. What I want is a caching proxy (i.e. sometimes it does a “real” request, sometimes it returns cached data) that:

  • does “new” searches more frequently. i.e. if a post is a new, query Technorati every few hours, or ever few days; if post is a few months old, query Technorati every few days or weeks.
  • limits itself to some number of queries per day.

Actually, It would be nice if it pre-fetched about-to-expire content (i.e. so that clients never hit an “expired” cache, and have to do a real-time Technorati query).
