    Another thing you may want to consider, and I’m not sure how to do it in wordpress, but with blogger it’s possible to change the settings so that only the first so many lines are displayed in a third party reader, i.e. google reader, then the reader must click through to the actual blog site to view the rest of the article. I don’t know about your readership, personally I read all my blogs using a third party reader. My point, is that by making people visit your blog to read the material “below the fold” then those readers are also able to view any ads you have on your site. By using a third party reader to read the whole post, readers never see the ads on your site. Just a thought to drive more traffic to your site. Also, I know you’re not supposed to ask readers to click on the ads just for the sake of generating what tiny profit they may generate, but I don’t think there is anything wrong with informing your readers that if they make a purchase with Amazon, that if they first click on your amazon ad (whether or not the product they intend to buy is the product being advertised on the amazon ad) prior to placing their order, then navigating to whatever purchase they want to make on the amazon site, this blog will get credit (again, a very tiny amount) but hey, even if it helps keep the lights on. I’m sure most who read your posts are able to see the amount of time you put into this ultra-low-almost-non-profit blog. Just a thought. Thanks again for your posts.

    Yeah, it looks pretty good! Hahh No shirt? Maybe it would have worked, but only to demonstrate a buprenorphine patch in the name of science!
    I have the ‘blog posts automagically get added to the forum’ thing working locally, and perhaps you’d like to add it to the forum. We could also feed in the Bupe news you have on the side in there. Like blc’s comment it will only show the first few lines in the post. The more post, the more people notice and join. Get the word out!

    Come on Doc. Take your shirt off God Damn It. BLC that sound like a great idea. Like you said “as long as it keeps the lights on”. Good way of putting it.
    Doc, you really need to spend some of that little time you have on your forum. Many questions are geared to you and alot of wrong answeres go on there. Also many many unanswered questions. Just a heads up so that you might want to take a peak now and then and at least answere some questions that never get answered.
