WDM PON: Sooner Rather Than Later?

What's with the label capitalization?

In response to inquiries about the random label capitalization scheme: when this blog/list was begun, Blogger was in Beta and had some issues. One issue was that all labels were converted to lower case. Changing them to upper case is still not trivial. New labels are now capitalized correctly.

Blogger has provided a way to bulk change from one label to another, but not from one capitalization scheme to another. Therefore, to change to the correct capitalization the old tags must be removed completely and new ones applied.

This process is ongoing and should complete at some point in 2008. Maybe 2009. Possibly later. If your favorite label is incorrect, please let me know and it will be prioritized appropriately.
