Stuff I linked to on Twitter last week

A post by Chris RowanSince there was a positive response from my first attempt, I’ll make this a regular weekend thing. I’m still working on the format. Apologies for the pirate-speak in some of the more recent tweets, but traditions must be upheld lest I be dispatched to Davey Jones’ Locker. Arrr.

    Thanks for tweeting the Denial Depot this week. I think you should start a movement to get them absorbed into the Seed collective.

  2. I was going to comment last time, but I didn’t because comment preview was broken. But it turns out that comment preview is still broken, so it’s more than the temporary glitch I assumed. On pressing Preview, I get this:
    Publish error in template ‘Comment Preview’: Error in tag: Can’t find included template module ‘HTML Head’
    I get this error only on this particular blog and not on any other ScienceBlogs I try to comment on.
