First off, I have to apologize. If you wrote something today or posted a comment today, it was accidentally blown away. My backup was corrupt and the last good data I had was from about 3a.m. EST Thursday morning. Sorry!

Anyway, after getting a few kinks worked out, it is otherwise working. The new features include:

  • Shorter URL's. Mine, for example, will simply be
  • Custom styles: You can choose from a few styles, and I'll work on additional styles in the next week or so. You can also do your own style, if you're really ambitious and know CSS.
  • Better album management: Order the pics by number and edit picture slugs.
  • Traditional blog roll: Gone is the difficult calendar and list box. You'll have your last 20 entries on your blog home, and the archive is broken up by month.
  • Edit comments: Duh.
  • Better friend management: Looks the same, but expired members will appear crossed out, and expired "friends of" will not appear at all.
  • Blog title and subitle: Found in your profile edit.
  • Web site: In your profile.
  • Public commenting: You can turn on the ability to allow non-members to post.

Stuff that won't quite be ready:

  • Totally hide a post from everyone but you.
  • Only friends can see post.
  • Comment track-back via RSS.

You should login and click the profile link in the left-side navigation. Check all of your options and fill in the blanks.

Where are the available custom styles? I'm not seeing them, quite possibly because I'm blind. Hmmmm, I have nothing to work on at work today (waiting for the PCI card to be programmed by an EE guy) maybe I'll look into doing my own.
