Those readers with a knack for caring too much may have noticed a lack of daily link posts over most of the last week; this was not intentional, but was a side effect of recent upgrades and rebuilds to the server. So in an effort to catch up, here are all the links you missed. Granted, many of them can be considered old by this point, but I prefer to think of them as finely aged.
If you’re the sort of person who lives or dies for these posts, cut out the potential 24 hour lag time in the automated posting – bookmark my linkblog directly.
