I think it's time to give the sidebar - specifically the links - some attention. There are quite a few on there that haven't been updated in months, and if you want to read them then you've probably read them by now, so I think they shall be ruthlessly (yet caringly) pruned. If one is yours, and you feel you have been unjustly discarded, do drop me a line - email address at the bottom of the page.
But, in order to preserve a little bit of history on here, here are the ones who go (in no significant order):
Big White Guy: I've just kind of stopped reading this lately.
Georgina: Who I worked with during my gap year. Nothing has happened on her site for a long, long time.
Little Fluffy Industries: Once the best place to waste a coffee break, it has now stagnated to nothing. A shame.
Peet: Explicitly stopped updating in September. This probably should have been removed long before now, but hey...
PhotographyBLOG: The gear-headedness of Gizmodo, only without the tongue-in-cheekness. I never click the link, so away it goes.
My Technorati profile: I started the Technorati signup/claim process, but to tell the truth I can't really see any reason or need to finish it. So, g'bye then.
The Shoe Project: A typically webby, geeky idea that was maybe kind of fun. I even have a pair of shoes on there. But last post was June 2004!
Twoshoes: Is mine. My hub site, if you will. You may have come here from there. It is in desperate need of a redesign, or at least some new copy. There's a bunch of other stuff I want to put on there. It will probably grow another link from here, but it doesn't belong in this here list, anyhow.
I'm struggling with the thought of The Zoo Of Small Plastic Animals. Nothing doing since November - is married life keeping you that busy?! However, for now it remains. Family is different, you see.
In the meantime, perhaps I will spend some time introducing those links that remain. But that is for another day...
