This update replaces the traditional links:
With sluglinks that have useful context in them:
I've been wanting to do this for a long time but didn't because I knew it would take hours to fix all the resulting bugs. Almost all of them should be fixed now, but if you see any more let me know.

Note that new posts are converted to the new system automatically. Duplicate sluglinks will get a number appended to them depending on how many of them exist already.

Almost all of the old posts have been converted to the new system as well. There are some that had duplicates and I didn't feel like writing a script to fix them, so for the time being they just link to the old system. They're all pretty old posts though, so no worries.

If things break horribly for whatever reason, you can access posts the old way by changing the "read" in the url to "permalink" -- for example:
This will redirect to the old view.php?post=108305

Are the old post links affected?

No, they still work. Apparently can't change them to the new format without significant restructuring.
