Oh, and I forgot to mention that I can't seem to find to save a link right off the page and had to e-mail myself, which is a mild but bearable annoyance.

Indeed, I did mention a Boston meetup. Tuesday, 5:30PM, Lord Hobo. Gets crowded, so we're going to try and get there on time.

moved to the South

As I recall, this was discussed only for rather northern values of "South".

Also on the song generator: I think "very" is my favorite. Earlier today Blume was plugging in actual song lyrics, which can be really hilarious if one of the words is from the actual song. Try, e.g. the first couple lines of Stairway to Heaven.

The way it breaks up some words is pretty annoying. Seriously, they don't have "she's" and they have to do "she" and "s" instead? Or does it just not recognize apostrophes?

I can't figure out how to link to a singing of my own, but I did notice that "are" and "gay" appear to come from the same song. And who the heck is singing that song?

It's surprisingly difficult to work around certain sounds, especially surrounding the 'r' and the 'v'. They actually have some of those sounds included in existing sounds, but haven't extracted them to make them available.
