Thanks to the Googles (what would we do without you, Larry, Sergey et al?) there's a nifty form on the home page which should make it super easy to submit statuses. And which should make it slightly more automated for me to update things. Which is great, because it has to be better than doing it all manually. (Yes, email and twitter will still be acceptable!)
I bet the form would even work from smart phones; I might make a standalone version for them. Later.
