California is mostly storms at the moment. My sister was reading by candlelight in San Jose this afternoon -- no electricity.
Meanwhile, I'm hacking, and posting, and if the winds here knock out power I will spit ink.
Christmas decorations and subsequent hacks slowed down my blog's loading time, and I've been trying to clean [virtual] house. Images have for the most part been optimized. Most widgets and gadgets have been tossed.

The navigation icons for Older Posts/Newer Posts [that's the neon Indian chief from the old Arrow Motel in Las Vegas] were added according to directions at La Bloguería.
Code doesn't need to be translated, how cool is that. For everything else, Google will be happy to translate. You can provide the site's URL or a section of text.
[Edited to add: yay rain!! It's pouring.]
