Yes the drawings are made with HTML. RSS is a way to
distribute weblog content from a weblog as a channel
to anyone who wants to receive it. My RSS channel is
half broken- for some reason it only sends out titles,
plain text, and links; it's not sending out the HTML.
I haven't bothered to figure out how to fix it.

I know programmers who talk about coding as a creative
pursuit: it's problem solving; some code is elegant,
well-written, visually appealing and so easier to use;
coding can reveal the individual, as do the comments
throughout the code; coding requires a kind of groove,
not unlike other creative pursuits in which one gets
into a groove. Of course, the audience is very
specfic, requires a certain kind of literacy. I
wonder, though, if poetry is more analogous to coding.
I'm sure others hear can say more about that than I
