Technical Problem

Sometime yesterday, for no reason I can fathom, I began having a problem posting comments in the thread from my last post, The Democrats And Taxes.

Every time I attempted to reply to a comment, I received a mostly blank error page with the following at the top:

Wrong, wrong, totally wrong. We have no page called (none), and we never did. So http://hardastarboard.mu.nu/archives/2006/10/the_democrats_a.php must have screwed everything up. They deserve an atomic wedgie for that.

This seems to be the sort of error message one gets at mu.nu., LOL. Not being, by any means, a computer wizard, I have no idea what this is about nor how to go about correcting it, though I'm more than positive it has something to do with something I either did or overlooked.

However, I'm hoping that whatever it was, it only applies to that post.

I do intend to get to the bottom of it and in so doing reply to a great comment forthwith. If anybody out there is more technically familiar with the workings of mu.nu and Moveable Type and can shed some light on what could have caused this and how I can correct it, I would greatly appreciate it.

**** I just attempted a test comment on this post and received the same error message. Hmmmmm.

Sorry about that. Let's see if I've got it fixed now.

Yes, that looks better.

I should do something about that error message - it can be a trifle confusing. ;)

I changed some settings earlier today to ward off a huge spam attack that was overloading the servers, but it didn't all work quite as planned. All seems to be fixed now though.

have you received the email? Sorry I haven't written earlier but I wasn't home at weekend and haven't had any internet access.

Hopefully you are doing fine. We've got so much work to do. On Thanks Giving I'll be over at LRMC and I'll be over there at December 6th also.

We've got some events for the wounded. My mother wants to help with the turkeys, it'll be funny cuze they'll be butterball Turkey made in Germany haha :)

Hope you are doing fine.

Take care.

I got your email, just been really busy while trying to figure out which logo (the heading, or the one in the upper right sidebar of your site) to use for a link.

I want to have Coalition Angels up with the Yellow Ribbon Fund and Any Soldier in my left sidebar.

We are always busy, aren't we? :)

I'll create you a banner. We've got holidays tomorrow and we need a Coalition Angels Banner anyway. You'll have it by tomorrow evening (German Time)

The Banner in the Sidebar is from Soldiers Angels, they have a different Motto and a different Database. :)

I tried accessing here sometime yesterday in the day, and figured you were having "mu.nu" issues.

Sure as shootin', LOL.

Personally, though, I hope Pixy (we're talking the boss, here, of mu.nu) doesn't change those fun error messages. They sure beat the frustrating and empissening "Page cannot be displayed" kind of messages.

I'll be checking it out shortly.

So you received the little Banner? Hopefully it'll work :)

It's a cool banner. :-)
