Sorry, you have been blocked — you are unable to access typepad.com

So you find it irritating that Typepad routinely blocks ALL comments — including mine — by sending them to a 404 Page Not Found?

Heck, I'm paying Typepad.

But I digress.

The reason comments stay in an apparent static order for a week or more at a time — like right now, for over a week — is that attempted new ones crash and burn at the 404 wall.

Yo Tam I'm talking to you.

Many years — at least five — of back and forth with Typepad about this have resulted in them concluding it's a fault of MY behind the scenes code/template, not a Typepad-based issue.

I don't believe it.

But I digress yet again.

Yesterday I was minding my own business, creating today's posts, when suddenly the page up top appeared after I went to pre-publish.

That's new.

But yet, just one more annoyance.

"The dogs bark, but the caravan moves on."*

Oh yeah, one more thing

Blast from the past: Gray Cat napping atop the cable box — through Google Glass

October 9, 2013 YouTube caption: "The only thing that Comcast does better than DirecTV is use outdated hard drive technology in its box instead of flash: excess heat creates a perfect napping surface for Gray Cat."
