Hi - I set these in my cmsPrefs:

#authorGitHubAccount "RickCogley"
#authorLinkedInAccount "rickcogley"

... along with the ones for Facebook and Twitter (thought that may be redundant since those are exposed in the GUI). I set the GitHub one to camel case because that's the way it appears in my github. 

I'm expecting to see the icons on the upper right, like I can see with other Fargo sites, but
what's happening is: 

* The GitHub icon does not show up at all
* The linkedin icon shows up, but, the link is:

When I look at my linkedin profile URL, inside the linkedin site, I see: 

They append the jp there, because I am based in Japan. 

Oddly enough, when I click that URL, it simply jumps me to this: 

... which I think is the US default. 

Any ideas what I can try here? Please advise, thanks!

Rick, I appreciate all the reports you're making -- it's good to have a user take such an interest in the product.

However, you're leaving out one crucial piece of information in the reports, the URL of your OPML file.

This is the clearest way for anyone to see what you're doing. It has all the data, along with the cmsPrefs.opml file.

Sorry about that. Why I shouldn't post while bleary eyed. :-)
