It's you -- you've been folding the internet again. No wonder Eddie is now a number and threads can't be accessed...

What they may have to do with Google I have no idea, but I would have thought it ought to be 'very little'.It's happening here and in a coupe of other places too, in particular the iPM thing about the Credit Crunch.

Might be too modern for some. You would think it was drawn and painted by 8 and 5 year olds :-) Wed 15 Oct 2008 21:14:12 GMT+1 Perky http://wwwsearch.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/is_art_recessionproof.shtml?page=70#comment17 Watching "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" the other day: he had a great piece featuring a commentator on the economic crisis who was called "Art Cashin". You couldn't make it up. Wed 15 Oct 2008 19:18:23 GMT+1 needsanewnickname http://wwwsearch.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/10/is_art_recessionproof.shtml?page=66#comment16 Hang on. Have I got to down a few (very cheap, horrible-tasting, all-I-can-afford) drinks before I understand all this?N-n, I don't feel bright enough to venture into surrealism, if that's where you're going. Just struggling through the headlines and young Mr P3$ton is all I can do these days.

It only seems to be a problem through Google Chrome.

I've got Google Chrome, IE and Opera - and the blog page looks fine through the latter two. I'm not sure why Chrome would not present the page properly though. And as I'm at home and not at work, there's not a lot I can do about it from here - beyond post this message, clearly.

Eeeeeek.After a good dousing with the yellow gold, I should think any of them would be worth at least 50 million...

Must get the council to send me another. I'll say it was stolen.
