New Bookmarking Widget Added

I've put a bookmarking widget up on the top left of this site that will allow you to submit my site (and any individual page or range of pages – ie. all pages within a category or a keyword) to any of thirty or so social bookmarking sites.  This includes all the major services – Digg, Reddit, Delicious, Stumbleupon – and probably a dozen or so I've never even heard of! 

So if you come to an article on say, “Five Ways To Improve Facebook” and think it would be good on Digg, just click the button on that page and the process should happen automagically. 

Then, if everything goes as planned, the next time you come back to my site, it'll be down because of all the traffic from Digg or wherever.  

A couple minor quibbles – I'd like to be able to customize the text on the button and I'd like to be able to customize which sites pop up when you click “Bookmark” instead of all thirty.  But otherwise, this is pretty handy.

Now, I think I'm going to crack a beer and watch the Flames try to come out of a bit of a skid that's pushing them down towards non-playoff (ie. Oilers) territory.

    Nice Dig.
    It will be interesting to see what happens to the Flamers on the road. Think of the party we could have (a 'sour grapes' party, of course) if the Oilers and the Flamers didn't make the playoffs.
    I've given up hope on the Oilers and have chosen another team to cheer for till the end of this season. But it isn't Calgary.

    It's not in the bag but I'm pretty sure the Flames will make the playoffs. I mean, it looks like a skid but they're 5-4-1 in their last ten games.
    It's just that Colorado has been 9-0-1 in their last 10 to make a hell of a run at the last spot. But they're still 4 points down so the odds of them keeping up a pace to make up two full games in the next nine games isn't that likely.
    9-0-1 in the last ten games is coincidentally is the exact opposite of the Oilers record 0-9-1. But you already knew that! 😉
    It's a tough spot to be in – I hate to cheer for the Oilers but when they're playing back to back against Colorado last night and tonight, I almost want to. (Nah, I hope Colorado buries them again! We've got four points between us and the Avs – we can give them a couple more if it further stretches the Oilers club record futility streak.)

    I want to argue. I really, really want to argue.
    But I can't. The Oilers suck this year. I don' t know about a 'club record futility streak', but man, do they suck this year.

    When I first saw your message in my in-box, I was like “Why does she want to argue abou the new bookmarking widget?” having forgotten what else we were discussing.
    But yeah, the Oilers are living up to the derogatory nickname, “Coilers” with their play which is literally, in the toilet these days.
    It is a club futility record, depending on how you define it – the twelve losses in a row they have right now set a new team record for games without a win (11) and they're heading for their record for games without a win or a tie (14 in a row in 1993-94).
    Obviously, the fact that the NHL no longer has ties puts an asterix besides this point. And they've got nearly a dozen guys hurt and are playing with what is bascially an AHL record. But if they can lose a couple more, then it's pretty clear – they really really suck any way you look at it.
    Maybe letting Ryan Smyth go will be a good move in the long term but he was the heart and soul of that franchise and it shows with how the team is doing right now. If I remember correctly, they still had a chance to make the playoffs at the trade deadline so if I were a fan, I would be very insulted that my team gave up like that (what did Kevin Lowe think would happen?)
    Professional athletes are extremely competitive but you wonder if the Oilers realise that every lose gets them closer to a higher draft pick and if they lose to Colorado again tonight, they're helping the Avs and potentially hurting the Flames?
    Speaking of, the Flames just beat two of the best teams in the league including a victory over Nashville who they've been unable to beat in their last nine match-ups. Looks like the Flames are already playing playoff hockey and it couldn't happen at a better time!
    Their road record worries me since they'll be starting on the road no matter where they end up in the standings. But as one of their players said, we win one of the first two on the road and we've got home ice advantage. Good point – Flames players are geniuses as well as great athletes!
