Shrinking the Archives

Two more tweaks to the site today. As some of the Category archives - Breaking News especially - have got pretty large through showing complete posts, I've changed the code so that it shows a forty-word excerpt only. This should make the pages load more quickly.

I've also modified the calendar in the Monthly archives so that when you click on a day that has entries, it'll take you to that day on the archive page rather than to the last entry's individual page. I'm thinking about changing the Monthly archives so that they only show excerpts as well - for consistency's sake if none other - but they do look fine the way they are, as there are usually only moderate postings in a month.
