Okay, so here's what we're going to do.
Every Sunday, there'll be a new post that summarizes some of the cool/neat/weird stuff that I've seen over the past week. This'll be the new thing that replaces the good ol' sidebar (may it rest in peace) that was with us for a number of years.
So if you were one of the folks who read this blog just for the weird links – and it's okay, I understand – then I hope I at least see you every Sunday.
