Due to extensive whining on the subject in this month's open discussion thread, I've set up an "Author Picks" section in the sidebar. This will allow authors to post interesting/useful links without the need for a separate blog entry.
I will write up an email with more specific instructions shortly, assuming all the authors have joined the Yahoo group (btw Tom, that email was most charming).
Also, TypeKey authentication is now enabled for all aqoul.com blogs. Anon comments are still permitted, mainly because we seem to have so many clever yet terribly paranoid commenters.

bloody hell! this new author picks thing will surely lead to multiple new subscriptions for my already stretched reading material budget.
i remain unconvinced of typekey. all seems a bit nefarious to me.
It might be useful to have an auth system on 'Aqoul. Still thinking about the possibilities.

Yes, the only thing missing from that shot is my laptop.
(No it's not me, though my mother saw her play Cleopatra and found the resemblance rather creepy. "Oh, she was so cunning and imperious, just like you!" Ah, mothers.)

Not that far off. Too Med though.

raf: i've been enlightened. perhaps some of the aqoul sister site ideas floated in the monthly comments post aren't so far fetched afterall...
Any chance of us peasants seeing even censored excerpts from Tom's email? The man can be seriously entertaining.

It wasn't that much of a muchness. Just your standard garden-variety whipped-puppy grovelling, really.
And I can grovel with the best of 'em, let me tell you.

tom: i'd pay to see that.
E: for the new quicklink thing... any chance of adding the ability to comment on them like we do on full posts?
