Anyone as irritated as I by Matt's recent April Foolery might be interested in my Dashboard enhancement plugin for WordPress, which I call "Zeitgeist".
Zeitgeist lets you see what is happening on your blog and get there, now!
Best of all, with Zeitgeist, Matt can't spam you unless you want him to. If you want the Dashboard back, deactivate Zeitgeist.
Zeitgeist One will be available soon. Beta testers welcome.
