Some people had complained that my blog categories—These, Them, Those, The Others, Maybe, and Not—were insufficiently clear. For those still wondering, they broke down something like this: The first four categories were a vague breakdown of frequency with which I checked a given blog. These were checked multiple times per day. Them, about once a day. Those, a few to several times a week. The Others, maybe once or twice a week. The Maybes were folks on long hiatuses or whose blogs are semi-permanently closed (or maybe even permanently closed, but I tend to be a hopeful sort). The Nots were blogs that like to pretend they aren't, but, well, if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck.... ;-)

Anyway, I’ve now replaced that obscure system with a much clearer system of acronyms. I’m just not gonna tell you what the acronyms mean. But I’m not completely without mercy...I will give you a few hints:
  • All but one occurrence of BT=“blogs that.”
  • No articles, prepositions or conjunctions have been left out of the acronyms.
  • Punctuation, however, has been omitted.
  • There is one acronym up with which Mr. Churchill would not have put.
  • There are a few links that could have fit into more than one category, but I put them where it was most convenient for me.
Beyond that, I will only answer yes or no to questions posed by any whose curiosity demands further explanation.

I’ve also put my bio (with updated age) and e-mail address in a separate box, and moved my archive links over to the far left to save a little bit of room in the links box. Not sure if I like the archive links there, but I thought I’d try this arrangement for a while. Also not sure whether or not I like the green box—I can’t seem to find a green that works exactly right—so I may switch it to purple if I grow to loathe it.

I finally figured out why a couple of my border widths weren’t working and fixed those (ah...it helps to re-post the CSS file!), and I think I figured out why my photo keeps coming out cut off, and fixed that.

Whaddaya think?

UPDATE: But now it's doing funky things with my tables. The blue and green boxes are sometimes rendering as squares. I've got heights specified (that's what I thought was wrong with the photo table), and I didn't change anything else on the tables, so I can't figure out why they're suddenly doing this. Help? :-(
