Lost in transmission?

Look closely at the photo in the Attractive property post:
Screenshot, 150%That's a screenshot from from my browser (display set to 1024x768) enlarged to 150%. Note the ripple in the edge of the carpet. Now look at the original:
Original at 150%I don't think that the browser is getting asked to resize the image.

Curious, innit?

Goodie, more stuff to play with

Gee,  no sooner do I mention rotating titles then RocketJones puts up a howto.  Before I activate mine, I'll have to come up with some more cleverness.

And most of the category icons are done.  I used transparent-background PNGs so that if I ever get around to changing the background color they won't be sitting in little white boxes.  The only one left is for "In Passing."  I just spent a couple of hours browsing through my dingbat collection, and nothing seemed suitable.  Right now I'm out of ideas.  Maybe I'll do a temporary one that says "Imagine Icon Here."

It's still there, but you'll never find it

Okay, the world didn't explode (where's the kaboom?)-- Good thing.
Both posts are still there, neither disappeared-- Also Good thing.
Both links now point to the newer post-- makes sense.
Bug or misfeature?

Yay!

Okay, let's try something mean:

I note the links to individual posts are of the form "http://[sitename]/[post title].  Let's see what happens if you give the same title to two posts...

Successfully created a new "include" template!  Note the "Useful Stuff" in the sidebar.

(Observation:  Too much stuff "just works" around here.  THIS is a BETA?)
