    guys, change your shortcut icon – it’s still the WordPress icon. Hell, just use the script A from the Ashcan word mark.

    Love the site, though. I just finished rereading A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, and this reminds me very much of Dave Eggers’ Might Magazine, or at least his description of same in the memoir.

    Now off to follow you on Twitter.

    Cheers
