So this is my new blog...

I didn't mean to have a new blog, really. Nathan wanted my help setting one up on his website, which i host. (It's currently at http://blog.herrperfekt.net, but with any luck i'll soon be able to move it to http://www.herrperfekt.net, which is currently giving me some DNS issues.) Anyway, i set this up to test it and see what it can do, so here i am.

In fact, it seems popular enough that i'll most likely be doing the same thing for Ms. Fledermaus and the Urban Agrarian later today.

I'm saddened by the fact that there is no œ̄ in Unicode, but that's hardly Blogger's fault, or Google, or really anyone but the Unicode Consortium. It would also be nice to get an uppercase ᵫ, as well as one with a macron, and hell, even some fonts that have them! And i'm a little disappointed that ᵫ with a combining macron goes all wonky, at least in Times New Roman. ᵫ̄ See? So in the meantime, blogging about Northeadish is going to be a little tricky. As much as it saddens me, i'll probably start using ȳ for ᵫ-macron for the time being. And i worry that anyone who doesn't have Vista and Office 2007 might not even be able to see the additional subsets of the Times New Roman font that contain things like ᵫ to begin with. Meh.

Anyway, the Urban Agrarian and i are off to visit Ms Fledermaus for the Great Leftover Exchange!

By the way, those of you who are new to my blog may be thinking, 'What's up with this guy not capitalizing the word "I"? Damn lazy bloggers anyway!' But for the record, i leave the word lower-case not out of laziness, but as a matter of principle. I'll extrapolate later, but rest assured that i am not a lazy blogger.
