[sackerson] a little off theme

Sackerson, at Bearwatch, has to be one of the best bloggers around and how he's not in the Top 200 I don't know. Don't necessarily judge by this off-theme post. Here are some other posts to peruse:

A light post on how much money we need; but this one is far more his bread and butter.

Sackerson would be embarrassed by this slightly OTT rap, as you'll glean form his tone but I care not - I know a good blog when I read one.



(1) Thanks for the plug, your Lordship.

(2) The Woman's Remote was spammed to me by my wife's cousin in America, I don't know where it originated.

(3) I tried to email Blogpower but I'm so untechno that it seems even that didn't work.

What I wanted to say was that some techno-whiz at Blogpower might be able to create a donwloadable sidebar widget to trawl for recent BP posts (say anything in the last 48 hours) and display the titles in a reel, similar to the Newsreel feature. Then we could click on anything we hadn't read - ideally, the post would appear in a new window, so you don't have to lose your own page and remake it (which takes a minute or two in my case).

This might help with the problem that BP members commented on recently, that even BP members don't read much of each others' stuff. I expect it would also attract more visits from the blogosphere generally. especially if the widget itself were made available to everyone, not just BP members.

Could you please forward this idea to the relevant underappreciated genius?

A mug of coffee plus Sackerson's "Sillence": It need no(t much) more to feel good on a cloudy - sic :) - Sunday morning.

Thanks for the commendation, James.

I'd want a "do my hair" and a "Do my ironing" button on that remote! I agree with Sackerson's suggestion here and I'm glad someone else is untechno!
