Apparently the new voice-recognition tool for the iPhone has problems understanding British accents, leading to some amusing mishaps. Have no fear, the article is safe for work.

    Sorry, this is not a comment; it’s more of a metacomment / suggestions.

    Is there any way that you could configure your blogging software to show more than 3 entries per page? I noticed that in under 24 hours you posted 4 new entries. And what ended up happening is that the first of those four gets bumped to Page 2.. where I have to click “Previous Entries” to get to it.

    And you post at such a high rate (not a bad thing 🙂 that if I don’t check your blog for 3-4 days, I might have to go through 2 or 3 previous pages.

    Instead, it would be nice to have, say, the 10 most recent posts all available on the first page.

    Just a thought.

    […] front page now shows the 10 most recent posts, rather than just 3. That was Jeremy’s suggestion. […]
