Blog Technicalities:
  • A bug in Haloscan: It has come to our attention that older posts on The Rebelution show '0' comments. We assume this is some sort of bug in Haloscan, because most of those "old" posts do have comments, oftentimes many. If anyone knows what's wrong or how to fix it, please let us know. For now, we would encourage those browsing old posts to ignore the '0' comments indicator. There's a lot of good discussion under those posts.
  • Is The Rebelution a pain to load? Here on The Rebelution we use more graphics than most blogs, and our sidebar is quite long. So far no one has complained, but we want to hear from our readers, particularly those with slower connections and those using Internet Explorer. Feel free to share any thoughts or suggestions along these lines, or for that matter, any template or design changes you think would be helpful.
