Off-topic comment: @Grendal your post came through weird for me. Your profile pic/info is at the bottom rather than the left. @Cosmacelf 's seems fine. Is it some moderator special power?
This is because this thread was turned into an "Article Thread" for the Blog. That changes up the format a little to make it more blog-like.
