Pagination, Here We Come

Web Site News
If anyone (Anyone? Anyone?) is a repeat visitor to my site, in particular, either my Yakkity Yak or Caching Adventures sections, you will have noticed the pages slowly growing longer, and longer, as new posts were added. They had become so large and cumbersome that folks using dial-up Internet connections probably gave up loading the pages long before they ever finished.
Necessity finally drove me to add pagination to my home-grown 'blog system. Some infrastructure was there, but unused. Now it's been completed. And in the process, I decided that rather than displaying 'blog posts in full within the page, I'd follow in the footsteps of most other 'blogs on the web, and just display article excerpts.
So check it out, and let me know of any glitches.
