Links and Trackbacks


Everything is looking great thus far.

On the question of links, let me echo Kryptos' suggestion that you should include a link to whatever previous post you are discussing. It may seem easy to keep track of now, but as we have more and more posts keeping a conversation together may become confusing.

Also, I encourage everyone to link to outside resources. If you find an article or blog post somewhere else in which you find compelling evidence of Kim Jong-Il's sanity, or lack thereof, then link to it.

If you do decide to post a link to another blog, you should consider using Trackback. Trackback tells the author of the blog (and whatever readers she may have) that you have commented on her post at your blog. If you're interested in having people read your work, it's the best way to go. Trackback is mildly tricky to pull off; you need to login to Haloscan (our login is "defensestatecraft", and our password is "dip750"), click the "Manage Trackback" link, then the "Manual Trackback" tab. From there, it's reasonably self-explanatory.

Keep up the good work.

UPDATE: Incidentally, if anyone can think of a good description for the blog, let me know and I'll post it.
