I feel a geek post coming on...

I was away from a computer for less than two weeks and my geek muscles were already itching for something to do, so a new project was necessary (my last one being to write a basic RSS aggregator to keep track of my online comics while I was on holiday), so I decided to automatically replace smileys on my blog with image equivalents. This was fairly straightforward for comments, where I have complete control over the source code (thanks to BlogKomm) but is proving trickier for the main posts, due to the way that Blogger works. Still, all basic smileys will now be converted to images in comments (and this is retrospective as well, so has happened for older ones as well). Ahh, pointless geekery. How much duller my life would be without it :o).
