“Upgrades” or “Little noticed thingies”

I’ve done a few things lately to make my site a bit more usable.

  1. I added search. Don’t know why it took me so long to realize I could add it…but when if finally dawned on me that you can embed Google search in a site for free, I quickly dug up the code to do it and added it as a side bar.

    So, if you’re curious if I slipped a post with your name in it past you, plug it in and see for yourself… It’s unlikely since I usually speak in generalities…but you never know. Better ideas would be "church" or "Eldredge" or "Chase" or some other keywords that have popped up on a regular basis.

  2. I re-categorized everything. Not sure what kind of drugs I’ve been smoking…but over the past week or so, I went through all of my previous posts and categorized them appropriately. I’m still not very specific with my categories, but at least I associated discussions on the Lions and Pistons with the "sports" category, all lyrics I’ve posted with "music" and most walk-with-God talk with the "spiritual reflections" category.

    So, check out the categories on the left, which I re-added to the left-side links.

  3. IM status. I’m rarely on Instant Messenger any more (just get too distracted when that thing is on), but if I am, the little AOL runner guy will show up in the top left.
  4. Comment feedback. For the most part, I’m now replying to comments left on this site. Keep you eyes peeled on the left to see if a comment from me has followed one you left. Also feel free to eves-drop on conversations with others.
