Hi. For some reason I am finding it easier to update this site now that I have a job. And I don’t even update it while I’m at work. I’m just more easily plugged in to things librarian, I suppose. To anyone who reads this site using RSSify via LISNews…. 20% of my traffic is suddenly coming from there. This site has a fair amount of readers, but not like that. Please consider setting your RSS reader to check for updates less frequently, or use one of the pre-made feeds that are linked above. I almost never update more than daily; setting a bot to check for updates every 5-30 minutes wastes bandwidth.

  • If these new powers aren’t needed to fight terrorism, why do you have them? And why did you misrepresent your reasons for seeking them?
  • If these powers have been used, why are you lying to us now?
