Fellow WU-vies--thanks to the alertness of several readers, we have been notified of a problem with posting comments. The captcha feature is glitched, working inconsistently. Our Master Hacker Alex (I think he learned all he knows from 1983's WarGames
) is working on a fix now.
Thanks for your patience. Without your comments, the blog would be only half what it is.
Update from Alex:
I "fixed" the problem by disabling the captcha system. Which may leave us wide open to spammers. We'll see how it goes for a few days.
Wow! Allowing comment posting without captchas was like opening wide the floodgates of spam. So that experiment lasted only about 10 minutes. For now I've changed the admin settings so that only logged-in members can post comments. And in the meantime, I'll search for an alternative captcha system that is compatible with our very old blogging software.
I found and installed an alternative captcha system. Let's see if it works! The neat thing is that most people won't see a captcha at all. It only shows if it thinks you might be a spammer, and it then asks you to solve a simple math problem.
Andrew Walls underwent a colonoscopy at the Delaware Surgery Center on Oct 12, 2012. For this procedure he was placed under anesthesia. And when he woke, he was wearing pink women's underwear. According to a lawsuit he's just filed, he insists that when he "presented for his colonoscopy he had not been wearing pink women's underwear and at no time did [he] voluntarily, knowingly or intentionally place the pink women's underwear upon himself."
He's claiming the pink underwear caused him "severe emotional stress" as well as mental anguish, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity. [Delaware Online
