By the way, I've been nominated for the Dutch Bloggies 2004 (our national weblog awards, sort of). Which surprised me since I haven't been doing all that much 'blogging' lately. Coincidentally I'm the only one in my category that doesn't write in Dutch. :)

Paul Hammond writes about Chaos Theory and Link Propogation with regard to how the css border slants link traveled through (a subset of) the weblog world.

I noticed too how nice it was that I could trace the link back from Arthur is verweg! to Simon Willison to Paul's site, all thanks to precise permalinking: pointing to specific entries rather than the front page of the originating blog. And if the sites in question allow visitor comments, this means jumping from one relevant conversation to another, to another, etc...

Antipixel | Buttons Redux: Tweakability - post/discussion on altering the look of the ubiquitous "xml.gif" button, prompted by his posting of a nice collection of custom button designs.

I've currently decided on using a text-only css-powered version, labelled 'RSS' instead of 'XML'. Recognisable enough, methinks. Scroll down to see it...

Update: here's the source code:
<a href="/rss.xml" style="background-color:#f60; border:2px outset #ffc8a4; color:white; text-decoration:none; font:bold 10px sans-serif; padding:0px 3px 0px 5px; letter-spacing:1;">RSS</a>

Ik denk telkens 'Nina Dari'(?) als ik het in m'n referrers zie, maar dit weblog heet dus eigenlijk 'Niks nada rien'.

pallaink noticed I linked back and writes (Excite translation):

Although it thought that there was access here and there and it was amusing something from the Netherlands (man of nl domain) from several days before, the reason was found today. To the page of banner I.AM/BALD Although an uncle's banner was decorated, this to the former page there Link It was carried out. What and まぁ ...
