Working in MyAdvogato this weekend, almost ready for a new release. Now everything is optional, including the edition of boxes, and some minor things that hadn't a corresponding flag. You can even edit the boxes in the home and not the ones in recentlog, or the other way around, if you wish.
User highlighting is a bit smarter: it detects links to your personal page in Advogato no matter the actual linked text. Thus, I see the following link to this guy highlighted. Links of that kind occur now and again in recentlog.
