Bending WordPress to my will

Comment previewing has been enabled.

A new tagline has been added at the top (did you notice it?).

To deal with the single most common question I get asked, I’ve added a list of introductory quantum computing links to the sidebar at the right.

The ability to translate into German, Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Chinese and several other languages has also been added (Yiddish not yet supported). In my field tests, the words “meatspace,” “whippersnapper,” “doofosity,” and “booger” were left untranslated.

Look out for further improvements in the days ahead — including a total-immersion virtual-reality tour of my Waterloo office, and actual writing of blog entries turned over to the RoboShtetl3000.

    This is just a test comment, to see if the most recent comments will display on the sidebar.

    I guess they will!

    Sorry, did comment previewing get turned off… oh, nevermind. :-)

    But you might want to place the live preview above the comment area, otherwise it may go unnoticed.

    The sidebar doesn’t appear in individual post pages, but that’s probably a good thing.

    Is it possible to make the “Recent comments” (or similar) link to separate pages that show more recent comments (or similar)?

    Next stop maybe… more descriptive permalinks.
