Site amendments

Amazon has done the unfathomable and changed its wishlist link; as far as we know, nobody was informed, and if you don’t have a cookie you might see items that aren’t supposed to be there. [Thanks to Kristen and Kottke remainders for the news]
And Blogshares has been closed down. So I’ve removed the link to the site. The ailing database had lost my ownership records months ago, so I’m not too surprised this has happened.
Update: Google has also overhauled its search engine. This has apparently affected many online businesses who no longer show up tops in the results pages.
