Two things

A cursory glance through my server logs tells me that Google is finally indexing (some of) my archives. I assume this situation will improve over time. This makes me happy.

Downloading the new NetNewsWire Lite 1.0.3 raises the question (yet again) over its dock badging — why a square? Like most applications that have some kind of “incoming document” (Mail, Proteus, etc), NetNewsWire displays a count of how many new news items are available. But unlike Mail or Proteus (excuse me for not researching this topic beyond those two apps, but what did you expect?) — whose dock–badging is a big, red, multi–pointed star of the circle–ish variety — NetNewsWire opts for a big red square. Why a square? I’m baffled. And hungry. It’s breakfast time.
