Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

Am I the only person who finds it mildly (and I'm being nice) annoying to see 13 posts from the same person in a single day on the main feed? Don't get me wrong... I'm glad you have a lot to say, and I know I'm not the most “on-topic” guy here, but when you do this, you totally flood the main feed. It's annoying.

I skimmed your blog, I know you're trying to hit some type of 1000 post landmark... ok fine, I can dig that. Are you aware that you can select whether or not a post goes to the main feed page?

Is it possible that you could either consilidate some of these incredibly short posts into a couple of longer, potentially meaningful posts?  If not, could you at least impose some kind of filter on what you send to the main page? I like reading what other people have to say too once in a while, and considering that the main page doesn't offer any easy paging mechanism to go back X number of posts at a time, when you do this mass flood posting, you're really screwing your GWB neighbors, some of whom might have something I actually want to read (instead of posts like: “I only posted 13 times today, tomorrow I'll try harder” or whatever... you get the point.)

i didn't even know there WAS a main feed....

but yep, i went and looked and there sure was....guess you learn something new everyday huh?

and Chris...I think I understand why you didn't choose to use graphics for you game...holy cow, talk about a pain in the arse...I barely have time to code because I'm constantly having to make new graphics or tweak them or figure out if my graphics are causing an issue or if it's my code!!! anyway, it's all becoming VERY clear now....

every week, your site doubles the entries, giving them identical titles. I have two of everything you posted. Not sure what's wrong, but your blog is the only one that does that.
