When HappyGeek posted about my signature line, my signature line was broken. I edited it trying to fix the broken link and it removed almost all of the BBCodes. It took a while to get it back into shape but looks fine now after repairing it.
Shifting gears to a different but related subject, I tried to find Gail Shaw's old article on how to post performance problems with no joy. First, you have to go to "Contributors" instead of the previously very convenient and now conspicuously missing "Authors" link. All sorts of stuff is combined in that link. I searched for "Gail Shaw" and it came up with squat. I searched for "GilaMonster" and found her. Oddly enough, they were attributed to "Gail Shaw", which the search couldn't find.
Even more annoying is that people's BLOG entries are now included under the "Authors with more than 10 articles" section instead of just the "Articles", like it used to be. And, of course, when you click on the author being sought, it takes you to a page which also does NOT distinguish between blogs and real live SSC articles. Any way to fix that?
