The article on income and statistics here not only points out that I'm doing quite well for myself (being above both the median and the mean incomes), but points out how silly the 'average' really is - as it doesn't actually tell you very much that's useful/interesting.

makes it pretty clear that 2/3 of people earn below an average wage - because the richest people push the average up significantly.

I'm sure that I had something which told you what percentage of people in full time employment in the UK earned less than you - but I can't seem to find it now...

Delicious Links Question

Is there anyone else out there that would find a guide to getting this set up useful?

I have everything I need to write a post on it, but I can't be arsed if nobody is going to find it handy...
