Yeah, I'm going to need more servers before I know it and I don't know how 
I'll fund them. Sound familiar? I asked Matt if I was crazy and he said he 
didn't think so but he wasn't very convincing. Just do me a favor and DON'T 
promote this plugin on your blogs yet. Just use it quietly.

Loads. I just have to work out how to get the data into BOTD. I'll probably 
end up adding Dublin Core-based meta tags to the head section just like 
dougal.gunters.org already does. That makes parsing super easy.

Matt, are you using a hacked BOTD plugin? I'm still getting hits for 
specific ranges on your random number generator and I don't think 
the_permalink($id) should be replicating a user-entered query. 'Fess up! Oh, 
and I'm running into 404's when I try to reindex your site's titles. Is that 
Bad Behavior?
