Fiddling with the script

30jan2009: When I write long rambling posts here, I wish I could just put an abstract of it here on the homepage. To use an idiom held over from the last century, I'd like to put the rest below the fold. Since the script that I wrote to assemble this page was originally just updating a newsbox, it copies all the content of each entry onto the front page, into the news feed, and onto a unified archive page. I have tweaked it a bit now, so that for longer entries I can have abridged versions appear in those places and let the full version hang out on the entry's permalink page.

In short: procrastination.

This entry is the first one to test the new script. So the only content below the fold, in this case, is this dummy paragraph.
