    I noticed this a while ago when I went to post a story. Mostly, it's rather nice, but I do miss one feature:

    Can it be made so that my link points to something other than my email address? I used to change it on every submission to point to my website, and actually I'd like to set that as the default.

    Was there a reason that choice was removed, or was it an unintended effect/feature without priority?

    Click your name in the submission and a box should appear that allows you to change it from your entered e-mail address to whatever you want.

    I am having a problem with the javascript bookmarklet in Firefox 3.5.2 where it is not recognizing me as logged in when I use the bookmarklet to popup the window and submit the story. And then when I click "Log In" it takes me to a blank submission page with no data (but I am logged in). Is this a known bug? Shouldn't it grab that information and log in status from a cookie or something when I'm logged in in another tab? Aside from that, it looks really slick and I'm excited I won't have to switch between windows so much while paraphrasing articles! Well done!
