Somehow, I noticed that my entries are being edited by some outside source-hypertext ad links are being added to my posts!
How do I stop this?
None of which I want to do.
Is there a program I can download to stop this agony?
All of you were either busy at work or home asleep and so failed to notice that a nasty BGP hiccup took both of Liquidweb's* Class B's off the net entirely** for about three hours... Yesno?
And since they offer a 99.9% uptime SLA with a 100:1 penalty clause, I expect that my bill will be rather smaller than usual this month. In fact, that should just about pay for the t-shirts.

** Unless, it seems, you were plugged directly into the Verio backbone - which I, for one, am not.

This particular script is an "in-line" script for php sites. It will produce this:
Permalink | Show Comments(3) | Add Comment | Trackback(2) more...

One way to make your site more reader-friendly is to provide a show/hide comments script. This script will show or "roll-down" your comments in the current window by clicking on a link displayed between your post text and your byline. Then you can click another link and hide or "roll-up" the comments.
I have modified the original Scripty Goddess code a little by inserting code to display a horizontal line between each comment. This makes separating and reading each somment a little easier. more...
You have already set the background-color property in your ID and Class divs. Now you may want to add a little "texture" or "personality" to your main page background.
Design gurus will tell you not to put text over an image as it will be difficult to read. I would make a few exceptions to that rule for my own personal purposes. One exception would be an image under the sidetitle text. Another design rule to keep in mind is "content is king". If you use tiled background images, make them subtle patterns and use complimentary colors so they don't overwhelm or distract from the content.
Now the process to insert background images. more...
To help raise some cash without spending a penny just trackback to this post. The Pudgy Pundit will make a donation for every blog that pings it.
We've got a load of Munuvians now. That would be a very nice chunk of change if y'all gave up a little link love.

I would like my blockquote to appear in a box, not just indented.
I would like my expanded post to appear on the same page, instead of on a separate page like the permalink. I would also like the code to allow a collapse back to the original view.
I would like to use an unusual font for my banner title and description (DeVinne Orn). I entered it in the font family, but it's not working. Any clues how I can get that to work?
I want to set up additional pages for additional info I currently have parked on another site. Is that possible to do with keeping the current style sheet, and how? :)
When I upload pictures, where do I go to find them again? :)

So far, everything works great except for photographs. The pictures in the sidebars of caughtintheXfire and Everyday Stranger look kinda like they were turned into rough watercolors in PhotoShop or something.
So, tell me, Mozilla users... wus up wit dat? And..er..what can I do about it? :)

It's 2am now, and I'm not going to fiddle with this any more tonight. Come the morning, I'm going to try a fresh install of MT 2.661 and see if that fixes anything.
Okay, we seem to have a slight problem with trackbacks.
As in, they don't work.
I'm looking into it now.
Update: Debbye just pinged me, and it worked fine. Weird. Still working on it...
Update: I just pinged myself, and it worked - when I used autodiscovery. When I put the URL in the ping box, it didn't work.
I just pinged Xset, which is running on a separate installation of MT. Autodiscovery worked; manual ping failed.
I can sort of see what's happening, but it doesn't make a lot of sense. It's treating some incoming pings as requests to view the ping page.
Pinged myself again. Buuut... Is this a problem with incoming pings, or with outgoing pings?
Blaaaweeef! Head hurties!
I would suggest replacing the entire list section of the script. This will give you all the fixes and the new sites listed here.
<option value="http://rishon-rishon.mu.nu/">Rishon Rishon</option>
<option value="http://countermeasures.mu.nu/">Electronic Countermeasures</option>
Everything should have transferred smoothly, but if you do happen to notice anything odd, let me know. The old database is still around, so if any posts got dropped or broken during the move, we can fix it good as new.
And it is faster :)
During that time, you will not be able to post, and readers will not be able to leave comments. It's Sunday!* Sleep in! Go fishing! Vacuum the cat!
Oh yes: You won't be able to change your templates, rebuild your blogs, edit existing entries, receive trackbacks, import, export... But your blog will still be readable.
Once it's all over, things should be a lot faster. Probably at least three times, possibly more.
* Possibly Saturday where you are.

Anyone got any ideas? Doesn't have to be an hours long radio show, updated weekly, or such. Just an ability to post rants, maybe an occaisional song from my friends, etc.
Let me know. I'm a looking.

Problem is, I hadn't realized that we have gone into the mouse reproductive cycles for new blogs, so I am overwhelmed.
Does anyone have the latest list of the Munu blogs for the sidebar, that I can copy and paste?
And...um...do you have it in alphabetical order, since I am anal retentive?
If anyone needs me, I will be in a fetal position under the table. Or else using a magical whirring toy, thinking about my broadband.
Now, my question.... (s)....
Is this possible? How is it done? Will it be retroactive and change all the past entries?
I know that Google and others have caches or whatever, so if someone did want to find evildoings involving this "LeeAnn" person, they most certainly could. However, although I do not blog from work on work time using work equipment, I'd like to continue to blog ABOUT work and make it more difficult, if the powers-that-be so choose, to know it's me.
Plus I just really like that whole Cheesemistress of Chaos tag.
Any suggestions, ye who know all?
First of all, let me thank Pixy Misa and Jim Peacock for inviting me to join and helping me to get set up. I'm still working on the migration to the MuNu site, I plan to go live on May 1 (May Day and all, you know). And I have a few questions for the crowd: more...
