Digging Abulsme

I was in one of those sorts of moods, so instead of doing what I should have been doing the last 30 minutes or so, I was messing around with my blog templates. I changed the format of the timestamp slightly… I played with more radical formats, but then went back to a semi-normal format, but a slightly different one that was there before.

And then I went and added Digg buttons, just to see how that worked. It was pretty damn simple of course. Just copy and paste some Javascript into the right part of the site templates. Now, do I anticipate a mad rush of diggs? Uh, no. Not at all. But it was fun adding them. I may well eventually take them back out again. But for the moment, they are there. So if you see a post you really like, do please feel quite fee to digg it. :-) I am of course expecting no such thing though.

And now, I should get back to other stuff I wanted to get done tonight… then get to sleep. I am very tired. Bleh.

    I should be careful encouraging Diggs of course. I’m not sure the bandwidth and hardware itself is on (Chris has that whole thing set up for me and I never asked) but (which I also added Digg buttons for) is running on my poor old iMac at home over a slow DSL connection. If it ever got more than two simultaneous visitors it would probably explode. :-)

    I suppose at some point I should move that to offsite hosting too. I like having it here on my own machine and all, but it does slow down my iMac for my normal use… just from all the stupid bots trying to hijack it if nothing else. Let alone if anything ever got any real sort of traffic. Which is of course unlikely. But if it ever did happen, the machine would just die instantly. :-)

    And did I mention the connection from the iMac to the DSL is 802.11g? :-)
