what I need to do next

# fix search form I’d like it if the results page showed the search term(s).
# fix syndication page just had to update my .htaccess (something to add to the upgrade guide?) (perhaps these 2 need to be better integrated into the WP install? that turned out to be dead easy. unfortunately, there’s something wonky with the auto-generated feed URLs.)
# look at Shelley’s hack for multi-blog support and work towards moving snapping links over to WP
# expand on my thoughts about upgrading
# see what’s up with quote encoding in my feeds

don’t know when any of these things will happen, of course, but it’s good to have a plan.
