Switching This Fargo Blog from blogHome to Stream Template

As an experiment I am converting this blog to the stream template (which is what Dave Winer is using at Scripting). I was looking at Chris Dadswell's blog (as well as his OPML) and realized that a stream blog can still contain type="outline" posts. For example, here is the 9/25 stream and here is one of his outline posts from 9/25. The RSS feed points to the full posts so the stream template is not a disservice to readers.

All I've done as of this writing is change this blog from blogHome to stream and remove everything in my <%customStylesScripts%> in the #glossary other than my Google Analytics script.

The downside is that the stream template does not support Markdown -- which is what I've written virtually all of my outline posts in -- so many of my posts on the home page will be presented as written (i.e., not converted to HTML). If I stick to writing in HTML then this formatting error will pass over time.

I will also add a permalink at the end of each post, so that if you are reading it on the home page, you can click over to the post itself.
