Our man ninjames is taking care of some business so he'll remain away from the links until this weekend. I want to make sure we can get folks their daily dose of links so I'll be handling them for now as much as I can. For now I'm scheduling them the night before to get them up early for our East Coast readers. Accordingly, they might be a bit light initially, but I'll be coming back in the morning, West Coast time, to get more links added in. Also, if you see links you think people would like, please post them in the comments.
Also, I'm looking for somebody who might be able to act as a backup for Ninjames when he's busy or just to give him a break every so often from posting the links. If you're interested in helping out, post something in the comments, or shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). On to the links!
