This linkfest is a week later than it was supposed to be. The past week or two I haven’t felt like blogging. In fact, I still don’t, so with this linkfest, I didn’t bother alphabetizing the entries by author name by usual. You’d be surprised how much faster that makes it. Or maybe you wouldn’t, since you know that merely listing links is an O(n) chore, whereas listing them alphabetically is an O(n log n) chore. Anyway, there has been a lot of good blogging in the past three weeks so I hope you’ll enjoy these links.
