Update For The New Year

As you can see I've had a gap of 17 days with no articles. Before that was a flurry of posts and then another gap of 16 days. These are my longest intervals to date, and I'm not sure if that's got something to do with the holidays or the fact I've been under the weather. Anyway, I thought I'd say "hello" from this side of the New Year and fill you in on a little info.

First, category lists are fully up-to-date. That's normal, actually, as I never let them get more than a few articles old. Besides, since the latest articles are on the first page of the site I hardly think that's a problem.

I'm almost caught up on the hundreds of "funny" links I've compiled over the last couple of years. I think there'll be one more group listing and then a few articles focussing on particularly crazy individual sites.

There's little more to say about the MicroTrack, which has evolved in a relatively short time into a very usable recorder. I'm confident enough in the unit that I can now say I'd buy one if I had the money. Thanks to everyone who has visited The Theatre of Noise looking specifically for info on this recorder. I hope you'll keep coming back for the other stuff on offer! As a bonus here's recent reviews from Sonic Studios and Transom .

I've been thinking more about children's film recently, and watched a few examples over Christmas. Though I was a fan of fantasy growing up, even when young I found Narnia repellent. Given the huge promotional push for the film and books that is on right now, I thought it relevant to include a link to an article explaining why Narnia represents everything that is most hateful about religion.

My Oblique Strategy code has received a fair amount of traffic. Titus Brown created a dynamic implementation. As did Fawcett.

Quite a few people also like my simple method for creating categories. Like this, this, this, this, this, and this. (And yeah, I know it's silly to have a list of "this" links with no descriptions, but it's just not important enough to me right now to fix. So there!)

For those interested in statistics, I am getting between 250 and 800 visitors per week, with a mean of around 500, which is pretty good considering I'm doing little to promote this site.
