Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Spyplanes & Nightingales by Me

Did I just fix the problem?

I removed two lines of code from the footer template that I considered superfluous and I think it loads properly again! o_O Does it work for you guys too? I know that a lot of readers don't ever feel the need to comment on this blog, which is fair enough, but a quick "yes" or "no" would be very helpful for me.

And could the problem with my forum maybe be a similar flaw in the code? After all, it also stops loading when it comes to the footer section. I updated the forum software to the latest stable phpBB2 release, but that obviously didn't solve the problem. More about the issue here. All phpBB related help is still most welcome.

And once again, I did it myself. The new forum can be found here - it runs on SMF (RSS! Weeee!) and the previous phpBB posts and accounts have been integrated. So you can sign in with your old account.

Oh, and we have Edward Gorey inspired ranks now: Doubtful Guest, Hapless Child, Abandoned Sock, Curious Sofa, Gilded Bat and Glorious Nosebleed. Hehe.

Can I go to bed now? Pleeease? It's 6 AM...

EDIT: Endless thanks to LoTekk for fixing the last forum glitches!

Oh, and that's my new hair, mum.

    Thanks for testing it, Melanie. I also realised that I owe you email from like 2006. o_O

    I'm very embarrassed about that - but you're still in my inbox and nothing will ever be forgotten. :)

    Loads in a flash on Safari. Well done.
    Quite a radical reaction to the find of your first grey hair the other day. (but I didn't have a nervous breakdown) Mum

    Oh well.. not everyone can be the avant-garde and know what will be fashionable in 2060 - it's a privilege to only a very few of us. ;)

    Anyway, thanks for checking the site, Hedi & Meagan!

    Hehe. Thanks for your feedback.

    Next stop: "Curious Sofa". I actually made it quite difficult to reach my "Glorious Nosebleed" status with min. 800 posts. :D
