Also: our viewing stats have gone fairly silly since Larvatus Prodeo voluntarily wound itself up, and I’m reasonably sure there’s a connection. However, apart from a couple of you, none of the new people are commenting… so, seriously, we don’t bite. We must be in fairly intense competition with Club Troppo for the most civil blog in Ozblogistan (and beyond). Insert customary joke about the Pymble Pony Club, now.
We are rather eclectic in our tastes, but if there’s something that you really want to write about (or want us to write about), drop it in one of the chit-chat threads, or leave it here.
