Friday, 5th of June, 2009: Still need to work on the Very Serious Blog. Added a couple of links, improved a couple of areas of site functionality.
Saturday, 30th of May, 2009: I've (just barely) started including content in the blog. This will essentially be a collection point for what I see as the best entries from other blogs and journals I keep, past and present... at least, that's the plan for now, but these plans don't always last. Meanwhile, Vel'ithya is getting married tomorrow.
Wednesday, 27th of May, 2009: Expanded the links list somewhat. Added the "Music" link, of not the music section. Improved 404 handling for areas of the site.
