    The page does not load properly in IE6. It has overlapping layers or some CSS positioning all snafu’d. I couldn’t read it at all.

    However, I was curious enough to try the link with Opera and can now read it fine.

    Interesting. I have no problem viewing it with IE6 on Win 98 or XP Home.

    I don’t know what happened. It loads fine this morning for me in IE6.

    Perhaps I’m crazy. I’ve been down with pneumonia and have been running some high fevers.

    The blog spam is all automated tight? Seems like simply changing the name of the mt-comments.cgi file, and then changing the templates to reflect the new name, should eliminate all of the comment spam as I’m pretty sure the spambot is searching for default installs of MT. I think I’m going to give it a try.
