Yay, le changes!

So I got a message from the folks at Blogawa inviting me to contribute to their feed. It seemed like a decent idea, with only one catch: I had to add a link to blogawa on my blog.

In theory, not a big problem, except my blog template was from back when you had to manually edit the HTML of the template to add stuff, and that was never fun. I seem to recall that I had a list of links back in the day; I'm not sure what ever happened to those.

Luckily, it wasn't too hard for me to upgrade to the modular style of blog template, where I can add and remove stuff fairly easily. Add a few links, tidy things up a bit, and she's done.

I'm still very much exhausted from Bluesfest, so I probably won't be posting much while I recover from that. In the meantime, feel free to partake in the many other entertaining links in my list of "Influences & Confluences".

New Flyer mechanic humour

When you ride a bike instead of the bus, you get to see little gems like these:

OC Transpo bus with letters rearranged to say New Lyer
OC Transpo bus with letters rearranged to say L NewfyThe first one reminds me of the City's "Rail transit plan".
