Another season of Aussie Rules has started and the regular
I have with my mate Steve in Melbourne is also underway,
unfortunately I'm currently third and last (we have a virtual
player who only tips based on the current ladder position, and
he's beating me too). Also
now seem to want you to register to read their stories so
it looks like I'll be going elsewhere for my news fixes;
I don't register for news stories anywhere as a matter
of a principle. They can find some other mugs to sell
their ads to...
On the plus side, my team the
are picking up where they left off and are already
heading in the right direction to win their fourth
successive grand final, although it's very early days
yet. Another plus point is that
now take Aussie Rules bets - I'm sure they didn't
last year - I reckon this could be a profitable season!

Well, I was going to upgrade to pyblosxom 0.9
a week or so back, but I got busy and there were
reports of a few minor bugs, so I held off and
pyblosxom 0.9.1 released.
I guess I've got no excuses now.
Nice job lads! The old Register design was ok in a retro
no-nonsense sort of way, but the new design just looks far
cleaner and more modern. It appears that they've added
some nice structural changes too, the permalinks are now
meaningful rather than being just a jumble of numbers,
the page titles carry a hint about the current story
- exceedingly useful when one has dozens of browser tabs
(or browser windows for you IE victims) open - and they even claim
"We're proud that The Register uses valid XHTML and CSS on its pages".
Now, who's next? There's plenty of news organisations with
lamentable sites (and a few who still haven't learnt about
feeds), it's great to see el Reg leading the way!
