I should have mentioned the nice little Read Later button below each post which allows you to quickly Instapaper the linked articles.

This is exactly what I want the internet to do for me. Among other things. Thanks!

Hello, wow, very happy to see this on the blue! I've been overjoyed with the feedback in projects.mefi and other places, and it's even better to see it here. This has been a pet project for months -- by which I mean I spent months thinking "this could be neat" and finally threw it all together 2 weeks ago -- and it's immensely gratifying to see the positive feedback.

I should note, while I'm here, that I just (literally hours ago) made the link roundups a subscription thing to see if I can make this thing cover its costs without depriving anybody of the site's main draw (I hope). My apologies if you were looking forward to that. I've been looking for an excuse to play with Member.ly, and this seemed like a good place for it. Experimental for now, we'll see. Feedback is welcome.

Boo. Less happy now. I say, we skin and eat him. Call me crazy.

You're crazy. Dibs on the brains.
