As the great man's guest must produce his good stories or songs at the evening banquet, as the platform orator exhibits his telling facts at mid-day, so the journalist lies under the stern obligation of extemporizing his lucid views, leading ideas, and nutshell truths for the breakfast table.
Cardinal J. H. Newman, Preface to The Idea of a University, 1852

Updated my personal webpage

I get a little pleasure from poking around in a most amateur way with my personal webpage.

Today I used a nifty facility, the Google AJAX Feed API to put in feeds from my blogs.

One thing that was almost spookily neat, was that on the AJAX Feed page it was sufficient to type 'intropy' and 'nutshell truths' for the wizard to find the URLs for my two blogs.
