I know I already "liked it", but this is a brilliant summary if you don't want to read a week's worth of posts - great idea.

Great idea, one suggestion Rob.

Instead of "Part(s) 1/2/3" you could use the weeks number, so "week 50/51/52".

Precision for the year too, so... ;)

Part 52/1 (year 1) or 52/11, 52/2011, 52-11... ?

Excelent! Usually I don't have a time to read everything (I didn't have a time to read anything previous two weeks). So this is very helpful.
