1. I can’t figure out how to convince wordpress that NY time is good time. Posting midnight is 5PM, and stats midnight is 7PM. Or add or a subtract an hour each – I forget when summer time is, and how wordpress time and summer time interact.

2. I wasn’t sure where to leave this comment since it wasn’t completely content-specific; I hope this isn’t too much of an intrusion.

I just want to share my puzzle website with you, http://www.webkendoku.com.

It is a place where you can play online KenKen games. According to Wikipedia, KenKen is logic and math puzzle developed by a Japanese mathematics teacher Tetsuya Miyamoto for the classroom.

Also, other math teachers have found it useful with their students.

Thank you for your time and again I hope this was not too much of an intrusion.

Cheers.
