Within the next day or so, Transbuddha’s migration to a WordPress setup shall be gloriously (and finally) complete. Along with better functionality, search, and commenting options (no more shall you be asked to log in for comments), one change will be the removal of the ‘Internet Sausage: Fat Free Links’ in the sidebar.
