It's happened, I've turned into a robot. Or, rhiaro was nice and gave me a tele-presence so I could pretend to be in Edinburgh.
Things I did:
I hope we have more HWC when I'm back in Edinburgh for the winter...
I added a nice little counter at the corner of each post on my stream.
It gives a heads-up as to how many people have responded and whether or not it's in response to another post.
Woo, I now have linear navigation. In other words, the older posts button now actually displays older posts!
