Back at it

Well that was relativley painless. Those folks over at WordPress sure are smart. All went according to plan and I even installed one of those “math comment field” spam blocker deals.

Let me know if it gives you any trouble.

While all this was backing-up/updating I watched the New York Times Book Review tour that aired on BookTV this past weekend. Pretty cool if I do say so. That would be a most awesome job to have. Did you see the pile of books that will never appear in the pages of the NYTBR? HUGE!!!! They said they get some 1,000 books submitted per week and only review 30-40 per weekend. Wow.

Makes me want to go read So Many Books by Gabriel Zaid again.

I have work to do…

so the site will be off and on all night tonight. The spammers apparently have my number. I haven’t been this ticked off in a long time.

I just deleted 290 comments, carpet bomb style. So if I trashed your comment, I’m sorry. I hope you’ll keep coming back to check us out.

Hopefully everything will go smoothly and we’ll be up and running in the morning.

Junking up the Site

Over in the right-hand column you’ll see “bugs” for Google and Frappr. As best as I can tell they’re both working fine. Go ahead and click the Google link and add us to your Google calendar. If you don’t have one, check it out. I was impressed and I know you will be. We’ll make sure we keep it updated every other day.

Feel free to add stores, publishers and libraries to Frappr. Add yourself as well, if you feel so inclined. You can post pics there of bookstore stuff. Soon (hopefully) we’ll have the Flickr pics streaming in as well.
