The nation's hottest video blog is back, and it's snappy. Rocketboom interim host Joanne Colan (pictured here holding a symbol for triumph) displays the polish and ease that many viewers felt long-time host Amanda Congdon lacked.

But that doesn't mean producer Andrew Baron has forgotten about his recently-lost partner. He writes on the front page, "best wishes amanda you will always be welcome back," linking to her "Amanda Unboomed" weblog. Drew, babe, it's okay to beg her to return. But don't do it in front of the whole world, 'kay?
