. . . .
A couple of weeks ago I had my first major problem (See "Lost and Found") and somehow resolved it. I think the problem stemmed from trying to include a ticker that I'd found that counted down the years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds, by golly, until the end of George W. Bush's presidency. Figuring that Blogger was heavily Republican, I edited it out. I never was sure whether that caused my problem or not, once it was removed, things settled down template-wise. Until this morning.

I am having a heck of a time this morning trying to republish after editing the sidebar. Oh, yes, the dratted sidebar! It all started when I tried to include a new link under the Religion and Politics section. It was a Liberal Democrat's blog. So again I became suspicious. I'm getting a message that reads:
001 java.net.ConnectException: Connection refusedblog/42/60/10/nancynearphiladelphia/archives/ 2006_10_01_nancynearphiladelphia_archive.html
So I'm trying a test post to see if I can make it work. I suppose I can consult Sharon and/or Desertsky again, but oh, how I'd like to figure this out myself. If you're reading this, it appears that I have fixed it. But once again, I've no idea how. Guess it's a good thing I'm persona non grata with the Republicans. We certainly wouldn't want me near anything that has to do with National Security.
