LJ syndication

I've just discovered that Nothing Rhymes with Rachel is now syndicated through Livejournal. Many thanks to whoever set this up!

Here is the link you'll need to add mechcat to your lj friends page.

This may very well cause an increase in blog entries. Nothing like a new audience...;-)

Sitemeter Cookies

I've only just learned of the stats tracking service Sitemeter, which I did use, allowing 3rd party spyware cookies to be installed in visitors' browsers. I've removed the Sitemeter counter from this blog and there are instructions on this page by Michael Sync on how to remove the specificclick cookies from your browser, which I recommend doing.

Update: So apparently it's not spyware, but Sitemeter have a lot of reputation ground to catch up on after this.

The specificclick.net cookie is being inaccurately characterized as Spyware, as it is only a cookie and does NOT install any software. The specificclick.net cookie is NOT spyware. The specificclick.net cookie performs no such activities that can be construed as spyware. We cannot control the fact that anti-spyware software companies incorrectly mark cookies as spyware.

Blogging Break

To spare you all the slow degeneration of this blog into the series of ill-concieved and poorly written rants it seems to be turning into, I'm going on a blogging break. A week? A month? Subscribe to the RSS and be pleasantly surprised.

New look - blue!

After a few days of lurid green text (do not play with the CSS page while drunk) I have settled on a new mature? scholarly? primary school? blue colour scheme for the website. Yes, a couple of tiny things are broken and if you really want you can go find them, but I'll bet you won't even notice, so I'm not going to fix them. At least not today.

And as a bonus you can try out your graphological skills on the header. Let me know what you discover. ;-)

Not at home.

Off to Brisbane/Conjure for the next week. I will attempt to stay in touch email and blog-wise, but if I fail I promise I'm not being intentionally rude. Not this time anyway.

You may have noticed a few changes to the look of this blog. Please be assured that it's not done yet, but I have a headache and have to go away for a little while. I'll let you know when to start telling me it's broken. At the moment please assume that I know.
