I was hesitant to write this but then after I posted it, it went viral on three separate occasions and continues to be my most popular post ever. (It is doing really well on StumbleUpon–and for all of you that voted for it before, the URL has changed and it’d be great if you could vote again)

One last thing:

And even though the design is awesome, the site really is easier to read via RSS. If you subscribe you’ll get all the updates within minutes of them being posted–and you won’t have to deal with ads, or load times or partial feeds, or any of that other stuff. I suggest Google Reader. If you want to subscribe to my feed, click here. I’d appreciate it if you would.
