Blog upgrade

Well, I upgraded to the new version of blogger right away, even though it is still in beta, because (1) I really really wanted labels and (2) I'm an early adopter.

I've decided not to reinstall Haloscan comments, mostly so that I can use word verification. Also, with the old Blogger comments visible, everyone can now see that the first comment on this blog was from everyone's blog crush, Bitch, Ph.D. If I can find a way to selectively reopen the halo threads for earlier posts I will.

Added: I was going to justify the time I spent today fussing with the new template by signing up for adsense and actually making money from the blog. But adsense is no longer there. Does anyone know what is up, or have any comments/experience with adsense?

Well I don't know if I can compete with Dr. B, but keep on rockin. I think that if nothing else, getting to talk to the mayor of Gretna more than justifies the time and effort you have put into this blog.

You will kindly refrain from mentioning the concept of the "blog crush." I own the patent, copyright, and trademark on that, buster.

Man, I wish Blogger's word verification would use real captcha words. It's like a visual memory test with every comment!

Could you have the comments pop up in a new window like the Haloscan ones? It makes it easier to see the comments and the blog at the same time.
