Nautilus annoyance

When using gnome with ion3 as the window manager, it makes sense to have nautilus not draw the desktop. Unfortunately, that gconf setting causes nautilus to die and restart repeatedly (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus/+bug/325973), which one can notice by watching the nautilus PID increase every fraction of a second or so. Until the bug is fixed, it's simplest to turn desktop drawing back on, and just hide the window that's produced. Ugh.

Migrated to blogger

I seem to have better things to keep me occupied these days than keeping my pyblosxom blog spam-free, so I'm moving my blog into the cloud and letting Google take care of things for me. The gdata python package made migrating the blog fairly painless, except for moving the comments. There haven't been so many comments, so I just migrated them by hand.
