DL Thurston’s blog at http://DLThurston.com/blog is currently broken and never got updated anyway.  Instead, watch him try to make sense of the War of 1812 at http://200years.dlthurston.com.  Rust is available now for Kindle, ePub readers, and iBooks, coming soon to Sony Reader.  He also just won the blog, since two of his weekly posts now appear back-to-back on the main page.
