It has been a long time (for ‘long’ read at least two years) since I stopped doing this and since then there has been the occasional hint that people actually liked it and were wondering when I was going to start again. Since this appealed to my ego, here is the New and Improved, Blogged and Aggregatable, Cynical and Daily (yeah, I don’t believe that either) TCSOTD!

I’m going to experiment with updating it througout the day rather than posting the whole thing in one go, meaning that those of you with aggregators should get the updates. This may not last long – let me know what you think in the comments…

If you just want a TCSOTD feed rather than the whole of this blog then this is the link that you should use.
