Ahoy! Ahoy! Three cheers for the return of the SubHonker Filter! Dan has created the world’s best blog-watching tool. I use the side-panel version of the SHF just about every day. The updating system has been out of whack for a few weeks (months?) but is now running again. I’m actually thrilled that BrainDan got it back into whack. Unfortunately some of my favorite new blogs aren’t registered at so the SHF doesn’t monitor them automatically … but in his genius, Dan coded the SHF to allow you to watch non-registered blogs, too.
