It might not be obvious from the recent flurry of activity, but I have new plans for this page. For one thing, I've installed Shaarli again (click through to see) for use as a buffer from now on. Makes adding links so much easier. Second, no more trying to balance links between the linklog and static directory pages. Clinklog is made to manage timestamped links, so I'm going to try and migrate all of them this way. To keep things under control, the idea is to be more aggressive about cleaning up. Hope you'll find this more useful going forward, assuming of course it works out at all. Cheers.
