hey all..

i just put a new site done with django online.. it was a personal  
project done over the weekend in response to the tsa's new blog and  
the reactions it provoked. its also the first personal project ive  
*actually* completed in a long time ;)


if you guys have a moment, would you mind hitting it up, checking it  
out, and making sure i didnt miss anything? if you have any comments  
suggestions (or complaints to add! content!) before the launch, i'd be  
very appreciative.

thanks much,
