After having installed MT 2.21, I managed to get the google integration going. Now you'll see a box on the right side of the main index page which lists matches that google has found based on the titles of my most recent blog entries. In case you're not a rocket surgeon, it's called "related links via google."

Also, I've manged to write a very simple Perl script called that converts the myChannels.opml file created by AmphetaDesk (the cool RSS aggregation software I use) into an include file. That include file is sucked it by PHP and appears in the "feeds/blogs I read" box on the right side of the main index page, just below the aforementioned google box. So now you can know what I read and easily get the feed URL by clicking on the ever-popular orange XML button.

I'll probably add a "book I'm reading" and "favorite new CD" module at some point too. I just need time to do it. Remember, I do have a book to write.

Any chance you could, you know, give that script out? It would be very cool.
