A note on comments:
- There's no undo or edit. Be happy with what you put up, or don't post anything.
- There's no preview. What you type is what you'll see.
- Don't worry about linebreaks. I've got that covered.
- Any hyperlink you type will be disabled, so no point in spamming the comments.
- I quite like running this blog like a despotic ruler. Thanks for asking.
