New blogs at roymond/Radio

I have started using a new blogging tool, Bloglines, and for now my entries can be found there. Once I have the time I'll figure out how to incorporate those posts into my own site again. For now...go here.

There's a lot to learn about their templates and such so for now it's all the default settings, which have a long way to go.
