Technical Problems

The site has been glitching a lot recently, especially when it comes to displaying entries with comments. I hope to have this fixed shortly, but I wanted to let everyone know that I'm aware of the problem (and how), and that repairs are underway.

for those struggling with this issue on our end, it seemed to help me to click an icon in my brouser for "comaptibility view". It's right next to "refresh" and "stop".

This is for yesterday's "Young Blood" post, which I unfortunately isn't accepting more comments. But happily I can post here. I'll post it again in its proper place when I can, but it's already yesterday's news...

Bathory's bathing in blood for eternal youth, and Dracula's drinking blood for immortality, are close but no cigar. It's Robert A. Heinlein that hits the bullseye: his Lazarus Long novels feature immortality by a periodic "rejuvenation" process, which "consists largely in replacing the entire blood tissue in an old person with new, young blood." (quoted from Methulselah's Children, p. 266 of my 1986 Baen paperback)

In "Can Anything Stop Pfizer-AstraZeneca From Going Through?"
comments are still unreachable.
Suggestion: Remove the question mark. Question marks are special in urls, and could be causing a problem here.

#4: I spoke too soon - I have the same problem with this post. Furthermore, the earlier posts from this month don't display correctly either.

It seems to come and go as to which pages it hits... usually it's a few of the most recent ones which come up blank at any given time. -w

Another glitch I'm not sure if you're aware of: Larger categories (including Blog Housekeeping) show only a limited amount (sometimes breaking off right after a title), with no apparent way to show more.
