Up to now I’ve preferred keeping my main weblog page as long as possible, mainly for convenience. That meant I rarely used MORE and kept posts on the main page for about a month. Yes, this increased my bandwidth, but so what? Bandwidth is cheap (although coincidentally, I recently had to upgrade from a $5 hosting plan to a $10 plan because of bandwidth).
But now that most people who read geeky blogs are using feed readers, I no longer really need to make my main page as long as it is. Now if I can only figure out the right menu to change this.
