I got through with IE9. Have a problem clearing the FF cache, expect to fare better if I replace Norwegian edition with English. But can live with IE for a while.

ETA: Even better, I am using Chrome now. It works too, and looks great.

ETA1: Removed OT stuff.

I'm getting the stuck page issue on the Bathroom Wall.  It says there are new posts, but I can't see anything past 12:38 Wednesday.

I've cleared the cache in IE8.  No effect.

Thanks

Is there any news on the issue at talk.origins beyond "the robo-moderator is on vacation"?

Ok, I might be behind the times here, but what the hell is with censoring the word "N.A.Z.I."?

I realise we have a bad case of creationists, and those guys just LOVE to call people "N.A.Z.I.S.", but really? Censorship? Bad form....or at least un-purged spam filter settings. ;-)

What next? Censoring the word "creationist"?

I'm doing some changes to inconvenience trolls. Hopefully they don't inconvenience other people, or too much inconvenience other people. Our most persistent troll would like us to close down registrations. I am loath to take that step, and I think I have a strategy to make the trolling a good deal more time-consuming than the remaining anti-trolling routines that are left to the moderators.

I agree that no changes to the registration process is needed. :)

Can't you just block the ISP he uses, or is he using multiple ones that would cause a major blockage (like an entire city)?

Although I'm getting used to seeing his posts in my newsreader - kinda like saying hi to the drunken bum lying in the street outside of your job everyday (or seeing the incoherent graffiti some druggie keeps putting on the sidewalk).

I say let 'er rip, WRE. I'm up for a small inconvenience if it means demabusizing.

He hasn't gotten a new registration through since the changes I put in yesterday. I tested a registration myself to make sure that other people could do it.

All I'm going to say is, one can employ than one computer (one in which I am signed into my account, and one in which I'm not) and one can have more than one tab open. It got so that I could flush him before anyone sent me a notice. Why this has not occurred to him is anyone's guess, but now it's too late. :)

ETA - grammar correction

Ikonboard has been running/serving dog-slow the last couple weeks.

Any notion why, and whether that can be corrected?

Same here. Vista, Firefox, ISP=Cox if that is any help.

I'm not sure why, but there were about nine Ikonboard processes that were just running and running. TWEP'd. It's more responsive now.

I was trying to search the Talk Origins Archive site today, but Google is rejecting all searches:

"We're sorry...

I can search Google normally from my computer.

I don't see the symptom you describe, so I don't think it's a problem at talkorigins.  Perhaps your ISP is doing something weird?

Me too. I just checked.

It only happend using the "search" function inside TO. An external Google search from my broswer window returned TO URLs without any problem.

There's feedback on Google from other people using Google's custom web search who are getting similar results. This appears to be a Google problem.

A non-Google person suggests generating a new Google custom search to replace the non-working one. I may give that a try.

I've updated the TOA search page with the new Google search. I'm not happy about it.
