Site Weirdness Update

I'm still trying to track down why some people can't read the main Wizbang page, but can read individual posts just fine. I've made some code changes to the main page to try to match the archive pages. Is anyone still having a problem reading the main page? If so what browser, OS, and firewall/proxy (if any) are you using?

Update: Thanks for the help. The offending code (the Google search box) has been identified and moved. I'm not sure if it was the Google code or the CSS DIV's that were getting hosed up, but it's all been fixed. The Google Search is now on it's own page. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It works fine now with Firefox and IE. Thanks for fixing it. I usually read using RSS, so I didn't discover the failure with the main site until Thursday or Friday of last week.

And thanks for including the whole post in the RSS feed. I can only read blogs that do this, and more and more just send a "teaser" line through RSS. I don't follow teaser links for religious reasons, although I am willing to evolve...

I Have Windows XP Pro SP2 and Internet Explorer v6 and lately when viewing your main page all I get is the blue background and the bomb logo in the upper left corner and that is it. This does not happen all the time, but lately it has been happening alot lately.

As I shared with you earlier, Kevin, the index page now displays correctly with your recent revisions to that template and without any revisions/changes to my OS (Windows XP w/SP2) and my browser (IE), using Norton Professional (unchanged since previous).

Whatever you've done to attempt to remedy whatever the problem was, it's been effective.

Oh, thank goodness! I thought it was just me and that I had screwed up some odd security setting or something.....
