cool, thanks Olly.

Here's a neat trick btw - the title in there doesn't actually do
anything (other than make it more human-parsable), so we can
stick wee referer codes in there to see
a) how much traffic is coming from a specific link or source
b) ...plus the traffic from people who take the link from that source
    and link to it themselves
(so you can work out the total benefit of a link from blogger).

To do that, you'd cite the link as say:
