Geoff: Does linking still help with search engines? I hear that it isn't as well-rated these days and to be honest nearly everything I've read recently about SEO has been of the "content is king" flavour so its something I've never worried about. The places I feel I ought to have links are places where I "hang out" online, I often click through to people's profiles to learn a bit more about them and I certainly get recordable traffic levels from sites where my URL is available in association with my persona.
How does everyone like the captcha? I've just failed to remember I was supposed to turn on images to be able to comment ... oops :)
