Insert Cuss Word of Choice Here

All right, I have HAD IT with you, Blogrolling! I only just put the main blogroll back today, because Blogrolling seemed to be on good behavior, whereas it had not been just a couple days ago. And, once again, it hath betrayed me.

I used to load Blogrolling last of anything, on advice (all right--scold) of Andrea. Then I went to this goofy pink-and-black template that I hacked offa Strange Banana, and I couldn't get it to work without loading all the left-most stuff first and all the right-most stuff--that is, my blog content--second. Thus did I give Blogrolling a license to mess with me. Again.

Anyway, blogroll's down. I'm going to handcode the damn thing. You won't be able to see what's been recently updated, but that's of little consequence, I think, in these days of RSS and XML and I don't know what all. Which is a long, fancy way of saying I doubt any of you really use the blogroll. And that's okay! I use very few of 'em myself.

Blogrolling occasionally (OK, more than occasionally) annoys me, too. Their pay version is not any better about this than their free version. I tried to configure a Movable Type Blogroll Plugin this weekend but I couldn't get it to look decent so I'm back to Blogrolling, for now, but I'll use that plugin if ever I can get it to work. FWIW, I do use your blogroll occasionally for Blog of the Day material. As bad as Blogrolling is, that Truth Laid Bear thing is even worse.
