No More Y!Q

For a while I’ve been using the Y!Q context search support for individual entries on this blog. I thought it was kind of novel and might be useful, but tonight I ripped it all out. I was not able to tell how many readers were using it (I probably could have written a wrapper to track clicks or something), but more importantly I wanted to drop the weight. The Javascript library was about 36KB and on an individual entry page typically 5KB (w/o pictures), that was a lot of overhead. Just trying to keep things simple and fast around here.
